Colorado: Yesterday & Today - Historic & Modern Photos


Uploaded on April 25, 2010 by grantcoll - Preview of the book "Colorado: Yesterday & Today." This book contains then-and-now photos by Grant Collier and his great-great-grandfather, the pioneer photographer Joseph Collier. The preview includes modern and historic photographs of Central City, Black Hawk, Golden, Denver, Telluride, the Royal Gorge, and the Georgetown Loop.

Here's a full description of the book: "When Joseph Collier left Scotland bound for Central City, Colorado in 1871, it was unclear whether the young immigrant would make much of a name for himself. However, through hard work and perseverance, Collier developed a reputation as one of the state's preeminent pioneer photographers.

Now, over a century later, Grant Collier has literally followed in the footsteps of his great-great-grandfather. Grant has traveled across Colorado taking photographs from precisely the same spots where Joseph Collier captured his images. These photographs are presented in the often-imitated but never duplicated book Colorado: Yesterday & Today."
