Stewart Building at 10th and Washington – Colorado Transcript – June 3, 1970

52 Years Ago
The front page of the June 3, 1970 Golden Daily Transcript announced a new paint job for the Golden Laundromat. It was changing from a “weathered white” to a brick red color. The caption reassured readers that the Indian painting on the south side of the building was left intact.

A post-paint job photo shows that the laundromat also got some striking signage! Note that the Visitors Center hasn’t yet been built across the street.

The Stewart building was originally a grocery store. It served as the Golden community center during the 1950s before becoming a laundromat in 1959. The building currently contains several businesses, including a consignment store on the first floor and a pilates studio on the second floor.

This present day photo shows that the Indian mural on the south side is still there. It was originally an advertising mural for tobacco.
