Here are a few photos of Palmer Lake from 1882 to
1910 taken from the
Denver Library Web Page. Very high resolution copies of these photos may
be ordered from the Denver Library for a reasonable price. I bought
several photos of Estemere from them and I plan to buy several of these
photos, as well. I highly recommend you check out this great resource!
I found these photos by entering "Palmer Lake" into their search engine.
Also, try "estemere" and "estamere."
