Cedar chest yields trove of century-old photos of Salt Lake

Kelley Bollinger, who lives in Cottonwood Heights, found some historic photographs a century old that her late mother had in a cedar chest. They included pictures of the early years of Liberty Park, as well as the nearby original Salt Palace and bicycle racing track.
There were also pictures of Eagle Gate, the Gardo House (on South Temple), the Garfield Smelter and Temple Square.
In all, there were 13 historic photos, including eight of them framed.
"I had the photos around the house," Bollinger said, explaining they had even been on the walls of her home for a time. "I finally decided it was ridiculous that I was keeping them."
