Publisher's description: Follow Denver's history from a mining town to a booming city through photographs of well-known locations as they once stood, and what they look like today This new edition, containing a host of local landmarks as they once looked, alongside the same viewpoint photographed today, has been extensively revised from the original version with new sites, new text, and additional photos. Much has changed since Denver was dubbed "Queen City of the Plains" more than a century ago. Denver's birth coincided with the dawn of the photography age, and so the transformation from frontier town to metropolis has been recorded at every step of the way. Go on a journey through the life of the Mile High City and explore this tribute to its ever-changing facade, chronicling the sad losses but also the preservation triumphs. Locations include Union Station, Lower 17th Street, Larimer Square, Palace Theatre, The Old Elephant Corral, Old City Hall, Tabor Opera House, City Auditorium, Curtis Street, Paramount Theater. Kittredge Building, Republic Building, Daniels and Fisher Tower, Denver Gas and Electric Building, Post Office, Colorado Bank, Brown Palace Hotel, Milwaukee Brewing, Denver Club, Coors Brewery, Denver Bears, and Montclair.
