From Library Journal:

Issued to commemorate the centennial of the building's dedication, this pictorial history of the Mormon Church's Salt Lake Temple features the work of a dozen pioneer photographers who recorded its construction over a 40-year period. While the photographs provide a compelling journey through a black-and-white past, Wadsworth provides color in his anecdotal and richly variegated text. Wadsworth (journalism, Utah State Univ.) has assembled an astonishing collection of pristine, epiphanous images from the past 140 years and has resurrected the image-makers themselves as flesh-and-blood. The author's coup de grace is a chapter on "The Max Florence Affair," detailing a clandestine photographic mission inside the temple in 1911. Recommended for regional collections and those strong in American architecture, photography, and religion.
