Notes

General Note:
View of a portion of a terracotta frieze sculpted by Robert Garrison (1895-1945) at the Denver Botanic Gardens, 1005 York Street, in the Chessman Park neighborhood of Denver, Colorado. These panels were originally part of a frieze on the Renaissance Revival-style Midland Savings Bank (1925; Fisher and Fisher, architects), in the Central Business District of Denver. When the exterior of the building was remodeled in 1964, the ornamental frieze was removed from the upper part of the second story and later incorporated into a wall on the west side of the Denver Botanic Gardens. The sculpture illustrates the story of Euro-American settlers moving west. In this portion, two male settlers with drawn guns are facing two Native Americans, one of whom is holding a shotgun.
