Boulder: Evolution of a City

Boulder: Evolution of a City

by Silvia Pettem

Editorial Reviews

Over 300 photographs demonstrate how Boulder, Colorado has developed, changed, and been preserved over the past century. A chapter on the work of early area photographers is followed by a tour through an evolving cityscape of log cabins and western false-fronted buildings that becomes a flourishing business district built on the successes of local mining and agricultural interests. The original city is examined with a look at the influences that shaped growth, including the characters, events, religion, culture and businesses of the city; the concluding discussion is of post-WWII expansion of the city. Fine b&w photographs. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
