If you follow our daily Pikes Peak Library District Historic Photo of the Day feature, there’s no doubt you’ve not only seen, but perhaps have been captivated by a few of the photographs by former Gazette Telegraph photographer Stan Payne. The Library’s own Jamey Hastings has produced a short documentary about the man who chronicled life in Colorado Springs from 1947 to 1976 through the lens of his camera.

You can browse the PPLD TV archives HERE or follow along with Special Collections at PPLD at their new Facebook page, HERE. Many thanks to the folks in the Video Center and the Special Collections department at the Pikes Peak Library District for doing a wonderful job safeguarding and sharing the unique history and culture of the Pikes Peak region.

    As a former Gazette Telegraph photographer, I worked for Stan from 1969 through 1973. I am glad to see this tribute to his photographic talent.
