About this title


"A real landmark on local history...the first major book that was well-received on any neighborhood in Denver," Tom Noel, University of Colorado history professor. First printed in 1976 by author Ruth Wiberg's family, later released by Pruett Publishing and now published by University Press of Colorado, the book won the 1993 Hubert Humphrey Award for its contributions to historical appreciation and preservation.

It contains b&w illustrations: photos, maps, historic prints. Scrupulously researched and full of descriptions of people, public buildings, trends, fashions and ethnic groups, as well as anecdotes. The book features a rare treasury of Victorian and turn-of-the-century buildings and the people who first came to Northwest Denver. It describes the area's incorporated suburbs of the 1800's, the farms, the early amusement parks, all of which became part of Denver around the turn of the century.
