SNAPPED: Park City High School band trip in 1950

PARK CITY, Utah — This photo of a Park City High School band trip in 1950 was taken by Park City photographer Kendall Webb, and recently digitized by the Park City Museum as a part of its ongoing digitization work.

The Park City Museum was awarded a Utah State Historical Records Advisory Board (USHRAB) 2023 award grant to complete the final stage of the digitization of thousands of images taken by Webb, who photographed daily life in Park City from the 1940s-1970s.

“His [Webb’s] work, which consists of everything from studio portraits to high school football games, weddings to Boy Scout trips, is a one-of-a-kind window into Park City between the 1940s-1970s, a time when the town saw immense change,” said a Facebook post from the USHRAB. “Webb’s images capture the shift between a declining mining industry and the beginnings of winter sports tourism and are one of the most important collections documenting the area’s history.”
