Overview

With the coming of the railroad in the late nineteenth century, the town of Phoenix in the Territory of Arizona would experience a rapid inflow of settlers who would call themselves Phoenicians and help to bring about Arizona statehood in 1912. In a selection of fine historic images from his best-selling book Historic Photos of Phoenix, Eduardo Obregón Pagán provides a revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of Phoenix. More than a hundred images collected in Remembering Phoenix offer a remarkable glimpse into the history of this unique desert community, from its early days to the recent past. Published in vivid black-and-white, these images communicate the historic events and everyday life of two centuries of Americans building a unique and prosperous western American city. Remembering Phoenix is sure to captivate anyone curious about the city’s past, from the student of history to the local history buff.
