Day 79 of 365 Days of Boulderado Photos ~ Balconies

Here are some balconies seen on the Hotel Boulderado's south side of the Historic Section, just above the Spruce Street entrance. They were never functional, rather ornamental. Ornate iron balconies like this were popular with Victorians who loved embodying the neo-classical, Italianate styles in their daily life, hence why they were included in the architecture for our Victorian era hotel.
