New from Arcadia Publishing and local authors Jani Huso and Catherine Ellis is Show Low in the popular Images of America series, featuring over 200 vintage images.
In true Old West fashion, Corydon Cooley and Marion Clark decided ownership of their ranch in the White Mountains with a game of “seven-up.” Cooley turned over the winning low card, and the name, Show Low, became history.
Highlights of Show Low:
• Includes Mormon settlers and Apaches, sawmills and logging, hunting and fishing, and rodeos and ranching
• Features the completion of Highway 60 through Salt River Canyon in the 1930s, finally providing adequate access from Phoenix and the nation
• Explains how Show Low’s elevation of 6,500 feet usually provides a slight wind which moves through the ponderosa pines
• Shows main street, known as the “Deuce of Clubs”
