Walnut street in downtown Fort Collins Then and Now
INTRODUCTION

Fort Collins Then and Now was designed by Mark Grigsby and provides a photographic tour of Fort Collins streets and buildings through the decades. The 1990s color photographs were taken on Christmas Day, 1997, by Don Woeber. The 1990s black and white photographs were taken in 1996 by Ed Bittner, local professional photographer. The 2010s photos were taken by Fort Collins resident Meg Dunn. High-resolution scans are available for purchase from the Local History Archive.
