Funicular Railway

In 1913, a funicular railway was built by local businessman Charles Quaintance on the Northwest face of South Table Mountain. There was, at that time, a combination dancehall-casino-tea room-observatory situated at the top of Castle Rock. That structure appears in this picture. Tourists from Denver rode the streetcars out to Golden for a day or evening in the mountains.
