When most people think of American history, they picture the way events and changing social values affected the country on a national level. However, while a more general study of the history as a nation is important, it’s essential not to underestimate the value of regional history. Each town, city, and neighbourhood in America has its own piece of the puzzle to offer when it comes to the bigger picture. Arcadia Publishing’s Images of America series seeks to shed new light on each one.
Images of America is an ambitious collection of chronicles that accurately capture the essence of what gives each American small town, neighbourhood, and downtown its unique flavour. Each one is penned by a seasoned local expert and features hundreds of vintage images, local memories, personal stories, and unique points of view in regards to a variety of iconic events. At present, the series encompasses thousands of volumes and counting.
