Photos of the American West


Teaching history with authentic historical photos certainly makes the task easier. The Denver Library has supplied wonderful photos that document the development of the American West: the great railroads rolling West, covered wagons on the trails, wild west shows, Native Americans, and even the famous Western saloons complete with patrons. The Library has also provided special collections on Native American women, and on Denver, The City Beautiful, which contains pictures of great early American architecture.
