Salt Lake City from Prospect Hill, 1885

Reference Code: GBR/0115/RCS/Y3089C/84

Scope and Contents

275 x 225 mm. A view looking down on to the expanding town, with the snow-capped Sawatch Mountains in the distance. Having arrived in this barren spot in June 184, Brigham Young surveyed the area, and ordered the city to be built on 10 acre lots, with streets 132 feet wide. In this print, housing can be seen spreading outwards from Temple Square, the centre of the city. The partially completed Temple and the Tabernacle can be seen at the right of the picture (see Y3089C/85).
