Format: Hardcover
This book is NOT about Mormons in Salt Lake City. The focus is on the growth of the physical city and its commerce, not its faith. In a way, I miss the Mormon aspect of its history very much. I hope that Turner does a collection, maybe several collections, of Early Mormon History in Utah and the other places founded and formed with strong Mormon influence.

This book was put together by Jeff Burbank. He is a journalist, editor, and teaches at the University of Nevada Las Vegas. The book's 197 pictures are placed in four sections.

The first in the early 1880s and is entitled "From Mormon Enclave to American City (1880-1905). I found it fascinating to see the very old buildings of our time (those that are still standing) when they were very new and just being built. The Mormon influence is not totally excised from the collection because the ceremony laying the capstone on the Salt Lake Temple is shown with crowds filling temple square (page 12) as are the celebrations of statehood in the Tabernacle and a commemoration of the aging pioneers.

The next section runs from 1906-1919 and is called "New Buildings, New Streets, New Faces". We see buildings going up, streetcar tracks being laid, and strung wires hanging from poles to provide electricity to the growing city. We also get pictures of visiting dignitaries including President Taft in this section. We do see some very interesting approaches to marketing and racing machines.

The third section covers 1920 through 1939 and is called "The Depression Stalls Public Improvements". This section provides more focus on entertainment including the local minor league baseball team, a visit by the Marx Brothers (page 173), and a social place called "The Lagoon".
