A series of old photos taken in Utah were called “incredible” by the website OnlyInYourState.com.

The website, which focuses on sharing content exclusive to various states, said the pictures are some of the oldest photos taken in the state.

“Can you imagine what it was like to live in Utah more than 100 years ago? Thanks to historians, some of Utah’s earliest photographs have been preserved so that we can all enjoy them,” the website states.

The photos include a shot of Daggett County in 1870 near Henry’s Fork along the Green River.

A series of other photos shows the Salt Lake Temple. One is from 1905, which includes “horse-drawn carriages and streetcar rails,” according to the website.

Another shows the temple during its construction in the 1880s.
