Summary
At the very edge of the twentieth century, William Henry Jackson - the most renowned Western landscape photographer of his day - joined the Detroit Publishing Company to produce postcard images of the United States, using the most advanced technology available. Eventually, the photographs and negatives were deposited in the Library of Congress and the Colorado Historical Society, creating an incomparable archive of American life in the first decade of this century. Photo historian Michael Lesy has selected and arranged over 200 photographs
