This is who entered my mind on reading the name and place. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Molly_BrownKathy Bates played her in that film.
Vince: You know your history. I do believe that this is the same Molly Brown.
Pretty cool, but your painting below is uber-sweet. Cheers Michele!!
Thanks darlin'! And now for todaze Brown Palace trivia. The Beatles visited the Queen City in '64 or '65, stayed in the Brown Palace and played in Red Rocks Amphitheater, waaaaaaay out west of Denver. Wasn't much 'teen Denver and Red Rocks in those days. The Fab Four could well have expected a stage coach ride to the concert venue! Meanwhile, back in town, an enterprising hotel employee saved the unwashed (!) sheets upon which the band slept, cut them up into little pieces and sold said pieces to the fans as relics. 'strue, i read it somewheres!
What a totally fabulous looking building.
Someone bought the Beatles' unwashed bed linens? This was before Yoko, right??
I love that era when they wrapped buildings around like that. Cool postcard.
That is SUCH a cool looking building! :)
The Brown Palace is an amazing place. ONCE only in my very young youth I got to go with my parents to this delightful stupendous place. I think it must be a royal castle set down in Denver!Lindahttp://coloradofarmlife.wordpress.com
