Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Earlier this year, we shared twelve amazing vintage ads shared by The Denver Eye, a Facebook page that showcases memorable images from the area's colorful history.

But as our Bree Davies pointed out in a post featuring her picks for the five best sites for looking at Denver's past, there are other places online to celebrate the Mile High City.

A great example is Save the Signs. The page was originally focused on saving vintage signage on Colfax, but over time, the scope has broadened.

Photo posts include great signs from around the country, but the majority are from Colorado — including occasional re-shares from, appropriately enough, The Denver Eye.

Below, see ten additional images from Colorado that will give you a feel for the page, complete with Save the Sign captions. If they whet your appetite for more (and we have a feeling they will), click here.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
