Denver has been singularly fortunate in that its history parallels that of photography, ensuring that even its early days were captured by pioneer photographers. The authors have scoured the collections of libraries, museums, and private individuals to assemble a superb visual record of Denver from its earliest days along the banks of Cherry Creek and the South Platte River through the current era of skyscrapers. In addition, the authors have provided a well-written and informative text to complement the photographs. Over 500 black and white photos plus 4 color plates, maps and bibliography. 336 pages.
