The City of Denver, 1888: an early
history of "The Queen City of the Plains"
by Edwards Roberts.
Here is Denver at a time when the Centennial State of Colorado was only 12 years old.
It is a story of mines, railroads, cattle and sheep, of cowboys, prospectors, bankers,
merchants, and politicians--the resources from the region and the personalities that
brought them together at this city on the plains at the base of the Rockies. The city
itself had had fewer than 50 residents during the winter of 1858-59, but already by 1888
public and private buildings, urban and suburban districts, parks and schools had been
built and arranged around a transportation system of rail, trolley, horse, and foot. It
was a system that had "fit", unlike today's transportation system. It must have
been an exciting period! There are also glimpses of satellite cities--Golden, Boulder,
Central City, Black Hawk, Georgetown, and Leadville. Reprinted from Harper's Magazine.
Illustrated with period engravings, 24 pages.
