Pike's Peak Avenue, 1952

The Antlers Hotel sit in front of Pike's Peak in the middle of a beautiful day. No less than 3 theaters are visible, all with great graphics and neon. The Ute advertises Pat and Mike with Spencer Tracy (1952). Across the street, the Peak is showing Retreat, Hell! (1952) with Frank Lovejoy.

The Antlers Hotel, named for an extensive antler collection that adorned its walls, was the premier hotel in the area in its day. The original, built in 1890, burned down in 1898. The second one (seen here) was demolished in 1969 to make way for the Antler Plaza hotel (below) which has some modern appeal to it, I guess.
