This mural was completed in 2008 by Kim Polomka. It was commissioned by Watson Realty who then owned the Giddings’ building. Edwin Giddings moved to Colorado in 1868 seeking a cure for tuberculosis. In 1874 he and his wife Hester started a dry goods store at 17 S. Tejon. In 1898-99 they built the then tallest building in Colorado Springs and its first true department store at 101 N. Tejon. The dry goods item tickets on the mural are copies of memorabilia from the Giddings’ family private
