Hi Judy and all,
Thanks for this reminder about photographic books.
Here are a few other resources folks may want to check for more images:
1) Dover books---large photos w/ prose descriptions;
2) Owl books--check out ISBN: 0-8050-6004-9;
3) Arcadia Publishing "Images of America" series. This is relatively new
series and includes paperbacks dedicated to small towns, and special places,
like Playland USA & Coney Island.
4) Google.com---Enter your place words then click Search. Then, use the
drop down menu for "Books," Some of these can be read or researched online,
even by entering surnames in the empty search box to the left! Most are out of
Barb, B.A. Literature
