Starbucks at the Grand Hyatt Denver will be pouring out history today

The expanded, full-service Starbucks in the Grand Hyatt Denver, 1750 Welton Street, reopens today -- and 100 percent of the day's sales will benefit the Denver Public Library.

Which is appropriate, because among the new amenities at this Starbucks include a collection of historic Denver photos, culled from images available at the DPL. And for today's reopening, additional photos are on display.

"The Digital Image database of the Denver Public Library's Western History Collection is rich in the history of the Rocky Mountain West," says Diane Lapierre, DPL community relations director. "The use of images by local businesses is just one way the library serves our community."

For a look at some of the images available, head to Starbucks -- or go to and search the Digital Image archives for more than 100,000 photos.
