Photos: La Alma pool gets a new look for its 100th birthday

But it sure doesn't look like it thanks to a new, improved pool and adjacent pool house paid for by a $3 million reconstruction and upgrade from the Better Denver Bond Program. Photographer Christopher Morgan was on hand to document Friday's grand opening, which featured political heavyweights, Lincoln Park neighbors and the Huitzilopochtli Dance Group. See them below.
