Though far from the coasts, Denver made its contributions to the war effort. When the war ended, Denver was ready to share in the abundance of the post-war years. Unfortunately, that bounty went elsewhere, and in the late 1940s, Denver was left scrambling for an answer to a suddenly-uncertain future. The hard years at the beginning of the decade were followed by a city rolling up its sleeves to try something new. It was the last decade before some dark times to come.
