Few people on Facebook can do a throwback of about a hundred years! But that is the beauty of the decades past - they define us and give structure to our modern society. Our lives and our cities build on the memories of our collective history - a foundation that gives us a unique and rich past, one that is should be preserved and celebrated.
Salt Lake City was founded by sheer pioneer will and was fortified by the entrepreneurial western spirit of its settlers. They tamed a wild uninhabitable desert and made a thriving city. They used their skill to construct beautiful architectural gems all over our fair city, some of which still survive today. If you are a fan of antiques and antiquities - at one time or another you may have become enchanted by the gorgeous and ornate victorian architecture of the past. Take a look at what life was like in Salt Lake then AND now.
