“... little has been accomplished toward publishing the vast photographic record which spans the full history of the Queen City of the Plains. Denver is uniquely fortunate that its pioneer beginnings closely coincided with technological advances in the science of photography, making it practical for the pioneer photographer to leave his studio and capture the changing scene about him ... the task has been to cull from many thousands, those few hundred picures which can each meet the demand to “equal a thousand words” ... hopefully, this record will honestly portray the life and times of the city that was and still is Denver” - from the Introduction.
