Summary

Colorado Springs has always held a special fascination for visitors. Early Indian tribes, trappers and hunters, the railroad builders, gold and silver prospectors, health seekers, tourists, and the military have all left their mark on the area. Set against magnificent Pikes Peak and the front range of the Rocky Mountains, Colorado Springs enjoys a history rich with all that is authentically American. As the sesquicentennial anniversary of the area and its gold rush in 2009 approaches, this look back seems particularly appropriate. Historic Photos of Colorado Springs showcases nearly 200 photographs of the city, focusing on hallmarks of its past while paying homage to lesser known points of interest. Printed in striking black-and-white and handsomely bound, these vignettes of Colorado Springs are sure to delight the history buff, the curious student, and all citizens wishing to explore their colorful local heritage.
