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

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.

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.
