Back in May, we shared a collection of twelve amazing vintage ads and more from The Denver Eye, a 2015 Best of Denver award winner whose Tom Lundin regularly celebrates the Mile High City's glorious past through photos, words and fascinating artifacts.
Since then, Lundin has posted one amazing shot after another — including many so crazy that it's hard to believe they really happened at all, let alone that they took place right here.
Below, check out ten pics that fit this description, accompanied by Lundin's original captions.
Then check out and like The Denver Eye on Facebook. You'll be glad you did.
"Halloween theme: The Alferd Packer exhibit at Denver Wax Museum. He's buried in Littleton."
"Boulder mascot Buddy Boulder, 1985."
"Long time Denver Eye viewers have seen this posted more than once (and the culprits usually fess up on here as well!) but this photo is too fun not to repost once in awhile. East High students stole the Big Boy statue from Azar's at 4115 E. Colfax and buried it in the front lawn at 1545 Detroit. May, 1981."
"Gene Amole.... 1953 at KDEN."
"Looks like he landed ok.... Also 1973."
"Colfax, 1980 (one of those photos that goes viral whenever we post it)."
"Denver Eye reader and world-class record collecter Lisa Wheeler sent in these excellent-quality photos of Denver's Mystery House!! I had posted photos from Manitou Spring's "Miracle House" in the past but had no idea that Denver was home to such an attraction in the 1950s!"
