Description
Denver was barely 10 years old in 1868 when visionary pioneers such as Alfred B. Case and Jacob W. Downing began amassing real estate holdings far from downtown, speculation that paid off when the newly arrived railroad led to a population explosion. With the opening of the Whittier School in 1883-the largest elementary school in the city-a domain for prairie dogs evolved into a middle-class haven of fine Victorian homes. Buffalo Bill Cody's sister even called the Whittier neighborhood home. The convenience and reliability of an expanding streetcar system brought the lifeblood of the city into the neighborhood. Whittier and its residents were also blessed with the establishment of a large, 320-acre park just to the east. This park, transformed from native prairie to irrigated forest, became one of the biggest attractions in Denver-City Park.
Author Shawn Snow is a fifth-generation Denverite with a passion for history and historic preservation. He assembled these photographs of Whittier, City Park, and surrounding Denver neighborhoods to relate their history from 1880 to 1950. Sources include the collections of residents Kate Johnson and Gary Kleiner, as well as the archives of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science and the Colorado Railroad Museum.
The Images of America series celebrates the history of neighborhoods, towns, and cities across the country. Using archival photographs, each title presents the distinctive stories from the past that shape the character of the community today. Arcadia is proud to play a part in the preservation of local heritage, making history available to all.
