Local photographer Roger Whitacre began shooting images of Denver in the 1970's. This exhibit contains images of buildings that either vanished from the landscape during the final decades of the twentieth century or, as in the case of Union Station, altered their appearance. Whitacre's black and white images document a vanished Denver.
