Overview


Bowling Green in Vintage Postcards is an engaging collection designed to entertain, educate, and enthrall history buffs, residents, and visitors alike with scenes of Bowling Green of yesteryear. When long hunters paused along the banks of the Barren River in the mid-1700s, little did they realize that this beautiful, varied landscape would one day boast a thriving city. Today, the city is hailed as the educational, retail, and commercial hub of South Central Kentucky. Preserved in this photo journal is the area's rich and vibrant past. Showcased are the things unique to this region-the horses, tobacco, strawberries, building stone, Corvettes, and Western Kentucky University. Highlighted are people, places, and events special to the river city-snapshots of Duncan Hines and local clairvoyant Edgar Cayce; rural towns and hamlets such as Smiths Grove, Woodburn, and Alvaton; and court day and the 1907 Prohibition parade.
