Union Station | Metro Denver

Installation Information

During the construction of The Crawford Hotel, this collection of items was found within the interior of the original waiting benches that occupied the Great Hall. It contains all manner of treasures including claim tickets, coins, tokens and trading cards. Like change in sofa cushions, these objects slipped in the seams and cracks of the benches, where they remained until the former benches were unassembled and removed due to hazardous materials within their framework.
