Denver is the capital of the U.S. state of Colorado and is located at sixteen hundred metres above sea level on a sunny high plateau on the edge of the Rocky Mountains. A number of brave pioneers once believed that Denver would be an ideal centre of trade and despite Indian hostilities and various other hazards they decided to build a town in this region. The 16th Street Mall is the city's pride. Inaugurated in 1982 it is a splendid avenue that boasts the longest pedestrianised area in the USA. Trees, fountains and sculptures adorn the street as well as horses and carriages. On Arapahoe Street close to 16th Street is the Daniels And Fisher Tower. In 1911 William Cooke Daniels ordered the construction of a bell tower above his shop. It resembled the Campanile of Venice and was designed to create a good degree of southern charm. Denver became a boomtown when the railroad arrived in 1870.
