We recently moved to south Denver and I wanted to learn more about the area. While this book is full of information it skips around both in geographical location and timeline. It jumps from the early days of DU, to a state run orphanage (complete with annual costs - I'm not sure why this information was included), to Observatory Park, back to the orphanage, then to a history of the University Park Methodist Church. It listed buildings and additions as well as who they were designed by, again information I don't know what to do with that doesn't add to the story of the area. There is also a constant flow of people introduced with no transitions between paragraphs. Overall it felt like a rather choppy read, an editor with a red pen could have made this feel a little more cohesive. I did gain some valuable information - unfortunately none of it applies to the area in which we actually live. Before reading this book I had no idea South Denver had at one time been it's own city - that is the "South Denver" in the title not the current geographical area.
