Overview


Communities rallying in the name of history have become a common phenomenon. Typically, the potential loss of a historic building or site serves as the catalyst. In the case of An Augusta

Scrapbook: Twentieth-Century Memories, a book brought Augustans together in the name of history. The community participation created a historical collage, representing a spectrum of photographic recollections. It is a glimpse at the significant, the uncommon, and the ordinary. The compilation of images, nevertheless, captures Augusta's community fabric.

Meet the Author


Credit for the book's concept is due WJBF NewsChannel 6. The station enlisted the knowledge of the dean of local historians, Dr. Edward J. Cashin, and the resources of the Augusta Museum of History, Historic Augusta, Inc., and the Richmond County Historical Society to move the project toward fruition. Yet, a robust public response to the call for old photographs made An Augusta Scrapbook a reality. The book is a tribute both to Augusta's past and the present generation interested in preserving it.
