Since this wild frontier land was settled at the bang of a gun one April morning, Oklahoma City has grown rapidly, experiencing some of the most drastic changes of all over the past century. Many of the photographs in this new volume show construction and
development as the city began to truly prosper��downtown skyscrapers and modern highways, museums such as the Cowboy Hall of Fame and the Kirkpatrick Planetarium, and major plants operated by General
Motors and Dayton Tire & Rubber Company. Recent images highlight celebrations, including high school football games, outings to Bricktown and Myriad Botanical Gardens, and finally, Opening Night 2000.
