    Soaring like an EAGLE !

    • It's the old Eden Roc Motel, before the sign was removed. (This answer may be kind of a cheat -- I never stayed there, just recognized it from my geeky collection of Googie architecture photos.) I think it's still there, under a new name, but minus the Googie goodness.

                              lol!!! Nope, I just remember that intersection well, having crossed it on the DLH Tram more times that I can count!

                              A bit more geeky trivia: to take that shot, the photographer would have been standing near the southeast corner of S. West St. and the south DL parking lot exit, near the RTD bus pickup/dropoff location. After crossing West St., the DLH tram would stop there to pick up/drop off RTD bus passengers, as announced on the tram spiel.

                                    Well, off to pull more photos. I'm beginning to think however that there is no challenging you guys any longer.

                                          I dunno, this thread has stumped me a bunch of times. But when I see Eagleman nail those upside-down photos in the CBJ, I think I may just have to retire to my Googie collection!
