Colfax, then and now
This photo of Colfax Avenue above was taken in 1972 for the Documerica project funded by the EPA to document environmental impact.
I had expressed disbelief that this was a real, undoctored photo, as I did not think the mountains could be photographed towering over Colfax like that.
Well, ace photographer Dan Disner proved me wrong by meticulously finding the exact spot to recreate this photo today. He really nailed it too, didn’t he?
Compare the Big-T Thriftway sign with the current Family Dollar sign, the Capitol building, the church steeple, the outline of the mountains and the Mountain State Bank sign, visible faintly through the trees in the contemporary photo.
Dan has a nice website where he displays some beautiful shots of the wildlife out on his farm in Adam’s County: http://www.your20.com/
