Denver and Colorado Photo Album
1912. Very Good. Photo album contains169 photos depicting scenes around Colorado and dates between 1912-1915. Black album covers with black leaves; most photos are tipped in, but a few are corner mounted. Photos measure from 2 ½" x 4 ¼" to 3 ¼" x 4 ¼" and about half have annotations in white ink. Approximately half of the leaves in the album are used. Overall very good. Album covers have light wear and a slight wave; a few photos have light to moderate yellowing, but most have nice contrast. The creator of this album is unknown but a two of the men are seen throughout the album. Photos depict travels and gatherings across Colorado including Manitou, Garden of the Gods, Palmer Lake, Kenosha Pass, Boreas Pass, and Breckenridge. There are also a few family photos set in Rapid City, South Dakota. Some photos of note include a Knights of Templar Parade in Pueblo, Colorado in 1913, and a Denver, Boulder & Western Railway train wreck on July 4th, 1915. The most significant images in this album depict the construction of a section of Union Station in Denver, Colorado spanning the years 1914-15 (it seems that one of the men pictured throughout the album -the one with glasses - worked on this project). Union station was built in three stages: the outer and lower wings of the building, constructed in 1881 and 1882, and the central section built in 1914. The 1914 redesign also included mechanical interlocking devices installed on the tracks, the raising of the railroad tracks, and construction of passenger tunnels to the trains.
