The Craziest Vintage Photos From The Denver Eye


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.
