Byron White Courthouse, Denver Colorado

This is the Byron White Courthouse in Denver Colorado, the courthouse of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

This is a really impressive structure, taking up an entire city block. Built in the Greek Revival style heavily associated with Federal Courthouses, it bears the somewhat disturbing message depicted above. The courthouse was built during the years 1910 to 1916, and of course was renamed for Byron White, who had played football prior at CU, prior to his legal career.
