Signed and inscribed by author inside front cover. ; Within thirty years of the time the first Mormons settled in the valley of the Great Salt Lake, George Ed Anderson set out to photograph all he could see of his land and of his church. In his portable tent gallery, in front yards, on the steps of boxcar homes, and in his studio in Springville, he made thousands of portraits. He documented the building of Mormon temples, the civic celebrations of growing towns, the advances of the railroads of industry. Always his images are sharp, and the most circumstantial details - buggy whips, washing machines, flowered hats and long skirts, watch-chains and tin cups, the bric-a-brac on a fine stone house, three boys' pet snakes - evoke a world that is gone. ; 9" x 10"; 155 pages;
