Wall Street of the Rockies

—Seventeenth Street Denver, Colorado —

Before the coming of the rails, stagecoaches were a major form of passenger transportation to and from Denver.

In 1878, Helen Hunt Jackson wrote, The public coaches are here, as everywhere, uncomfortable, overloaded, intolerable. I know of no surer way to rob a journey of its finest pleasure than to commit ones self to one of these vehicles It means being obliged to get up at hours you abhor to sit close to people you dislike, to eat when you are not hungry to be drenched with rain, soaked with dust and never have a chance to pick a flower. It means misery.
