Glenwood Springs, Colorado, circa 1957 is an anthology of newspaper accounts; over 120 rare photos and images; recipes; trivia; stories; and recollections of life as it was in the fabulous fifties in a small resort town in Colorado.
Having grown up in that beautiful mountain resort, author Alice (Eames) Allan writes, "Nearly forgotten and nestled in between the War to End All Wars and modern times, 'Old Glenwood' was a wonderful place for kids to grow up. It was a town that revered its isolation, had a respect for simplicity, and protected the unrestrained innocence of its youth.
"During the 1950s life in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, offered a varied mixture of the old pioneer ways and the technology advancements the rest of the country had already experienced. It was fun. And magical. We truly lived in an enchanted small town - something that should only exist on TV, even today. But it really did exist. It was perfect."
