Market Street, Denver

The following shots were all taken on Market Street in Denver, and to me, show traces of a past for that particular street that captured Kerouac’s imagination and fantasy, mainly with regards to his hero Neal Cassady and Cassady’s dad. I chose the building in the first photograph for its well-worn looks and crumbling walls.

The last two photos were chosen as Cassady was working as a parking lot attendant, both in Denver and in New York and his working style is described on quite a few occasions in a few of Kerouac’s books.
