Here Are The Oldest Photos Ever Taken In Arizona And They’re Incredible
If there is anything photography is able to showcase better than any other art, it is the passage of time. One look at any photograph will give you a sense of the year it was taken and the lives it depicts. Today, we’re going to take a look at some photos that show off the state in its early years as Arizona Territory. It’ll give you some insight into how much this land has changed in nearly 150 years.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
