Older date?

The photo could be much older than 1900, since the electric trolley car is running on old Denver Tramway Company cable car tracks in Tremont Place that last had cable service Nov. 28, 1891. Denver City Cable Railway opened their cable car line on 17th Street in the foreground across Tremont Place Dec. 22, 1891. There are no Tremont Place cable car slots in the crossings with the 17th Street line.

[The Brown Palace was built in 1892. - Dave]
