View an image of Utah's Saltair Resort in the 1950s. By the 1950s, the Great Salt Lake had receded far from Saltair's pier, and the resort was closed. This image is extracted from the 22-part video series The Geography of Utah, conceived and written by Albert L. Fisher, PhD (University of Utah). The series encompasses the political, cultural, historical and sociological geography of the state of Utah. It describes the activities, the land and the people. Much of the video material was videotaped on location throughout the state of Utah, giving the student and interested viewer valuable field trip experiences.
