The Burnham Shops were built in the 1870s and, when it was at its peak, the shops included a foundry and a blacksmith and the shops could build new railcars from the ground up. When the City of Denver wanted to build the 8th Avenue overpass, the main shops were smack in the middle of where 8th Avenue would run. So, the city built the overpass with a bend in it and it went around the south end of the building. Here is said building (Building #14) with the overpass in front of it. After (roughly) 140 years, Burnham Shops shut down on Valentine's Day, 2016.
