Summer, Wrapped Up


Salt Lake County Tax Appraisal Photograph, serial 40-178.

This cabin, located up Big Cottonwood Canyon, was built circa 1903. This image shows the building in 1938, with the shutters closed and bolted against the upcoming winter season. (Note the Salt Lake County assessor using the front porch to fill out paperwork). By the 1950s, the cabin had deteriorated and the assessor noted it only had salvage value at that time.
