Then and Now...422 East Pikes Peak Avenue, Colorado Springs, CO

Because I continue to be fascinated with my grand-aunt Ruth's scrapbook I never knew existed, the new cover photo is of a place my Balding relatives stayed in the 1920s. The caption in the lower left-hand corner says: The Millers Hotel, 422 E Pikes Peak Avenue, Colorado Springs, Colo.

When I tried to find one of the theaters my grandfather managed, I found an overpass.

Something to think about: In Rome some buildings have walls that were part of ancient Roman buildings. Hmmmm.
