Captain Kirk, the photographer of these images, started in the 1980s to travel around the West—frequently jumping out of the car—to capture some of this architectural history before it disappeared. He shot these images with a Nikon camera. The Kodak and Fuji film would be mounted in cardboard slides that could only be enjoyed by setting up a slide projector and reflective screen in one’s living room. Digital technology has made it possible to now expand the audience who can now enjoy—and make useful in research—these images.
