The Denver Public Library has received widespread acclaim for their Western History & Genealogy digital collections. This particular nook contains hundreds of building plans and drawings from the greater Denver area and beyond. The wonderful items here are divided into nine thematic areas, including Landscape Architecture, Fisher and Fisher, Edwin A. Francis, and Civic Center. This last area contains a myriad of plans for proposed civic buildings and dramatic structures both in Denver and Cheyenne, WY. It's fascinating to see how various architects thought they might craft lasting tributes to a certain civic spirit and community. The Architectural Details area is a fine find as well, and it contains over 160 window details from high school buildings and ornate fences for private residences.
