This Is The Place Monument – Salt Lake City, Utah

This Is The Place Monument

This Is The Place Monument

My grandparents must have purchased this photo postcard when they visited Utah on their way to California in the summer of 1952. It was found in my grandpa's 1952 scrapbook that had photos and postcards from their immigration trip from Brazil to the United States.

This postcard shows the This Is The Place Monument which is located at This Is The Place Heritage Park in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The monument was dedicated in 1947, one hundred years after the first Mormon pioneers entered the Salt Lake Valley.

My grandparents bought six different postcards depicting this monument. I'll be sharing the rest of these postcards in future posts.

Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Hi Wendy,

      Yes, it really does. And there are several different people and groups represented on the monument. A few of the other vintage postcards in my grandparents' collection give us a better view of these. Thanks for stopping by!
