Overview


Though the landscape has certainly changed, many of Birmingham’s early landmarks—testaments to the steelworkers who built the city after the Civil War, as well as those who have since prospered here—remain. In Birmingham Landmarks, Alabama native Victoria Myers explores the Magic City’s most prominent industrial and cultural features. Step back in time to discover Rickwood Field, one of America’s oldest baseball parks, and the Carver Theater, the only venue that allowed African Americans to view first-run movies before the civil rights movement. Find out why Birmingham is known as the Pittsburgh of the South at Sloss Furnaces and learn the secrets of Vulcan, who was commissioned for the 1904 World’s Fair and has become one of the state’s most recognizable monuments.
