Progress and Assimilation 1903-1930

Just as Globeville had been annexed into the city of Denver, immigrants were becoming American citizens. Children were learning to speak English in school and educating their parents in American customs - music, foods, movies and baseball. Jobs in the railroads, foundries, brick yards and meat packing plants helped families buy homes and even some cars. Small businesses and churches prospered. The American dream seemed attainable.
