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

If you haven't checked out the Denver Eye Facebook page yet, we strongly encourage you to do so right away.

The site earned a well-deserved 2015 Best of Denver award and Tom Lundin, the man behind it, has been feted in this space for his celebrations of the Mile High City's glorious past through photos, words and fascinating artifacts.

In this post, we feature the latter: vintage Denver-area ads or promotional images that will fill longtime Denverites with nostalgia and inspire newcomers to explore the rich history of the place they're making their home.

See a dozen examples below — and when you're done, be sure to visit The Denver Eye. 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.
