Inscription.  On December 10, 1975, 17th Street celebrated its 25th year as a concrete street. Anniversary invitations were engraved in old English and former Governor John Love led the champagne toast.

In 1950, amid great City Council debate, 17th Street was the first concrete street in Downtown Denver. The initial cost of $188,000 was considered extravagant, yet it required no repairs for its first 25 years.
 
Erected by Walk of Fame International. (Marker Number 17e.)
