Denver Civic Center Postcard

The postcard shows an incompletely developed Denver Civic Center (when this postcard was produced). Civic Center is a neighborhood and park located in central Denver, Colorado just south of the Central Business District. The park is home to many fountains, statues, and formal gardens, and includes a Greek amphitheater, a war memorial, and the Voorhees Memorial Seal Pond. It is well known for its symmetrical Neoclassical design.
