Desert Book Company, Salt Lake City, Utah
Eagle Gate Looking Towards State Capitol
This structure, originally holding double gates, formed part of the unique cobblestone wall around the property of Birgham Young. For several years it has been preserved as a landmark, having been reconstructed of cut stone. The Eagle, originally of carved wood, has been sheathed with copper, in order that it may withstand the elements. It has no special significance to the Mormons, except that they are always glad to see the outspread and protecting wings of our noble bird of freedom. Ensign Peak is seen in the distance on the left.
