Read full description of the books:
When I first got this and read it straight through (probably sometime in the seventies), I thought it wasn't terribly well written because it was so episodic; having read a lot more local history books since then that seems to be pretty typical. The author is not a great story-teller but offers tons of information and quirky details on the buildings and history of Denver. The fact that she limits the book to Victorian architecture means there is more detail on many buildings than you would find in a book trying to cover a wider spectrum of Denver architecture.
Lots of black and white photos and drawings, some of them of buildings gone when the book was published as well as many cool ones still around, like the Molly Brown House or the Equitable Building. It's fun to compare some of the shots of buildings isolated out in the middle of nowhere with their present situation!
There's an index of structures and a separate general index (mostly people or books but also areas like "Blue Row" or "Quality Hill").

Sandra’s novels with their themes of loyalty, friendship, and human dignity have been translated into a dozen foreign languages and have been optioned for films.
A journalism graduate of the University of Denver, Sandra began her writing career as a reporter with Business Week. A staff member for twenty-five years (and the magazine’s first female bureau chief,) she covered the Rocky Mountain region, writing about everything from penny-stock scandals to hard-rock mining, western energy development to contemporary polygamy. Many of her experiences have been incorporated into her novels.
While a reporter, she began writing the first of ten nonfiction books. They include Sacred Paint, which won the National Cowboy Hall of Fame Western Heritage Wrangler Award, and The Quilt That Walked to Golden, recipient of the Independent Publishers Assn. Benjamin Franklin Award.
Turning to fiction in 1990, Sandra has published eight novels, including Prayers For Sale.
