Broome County: 1850-1940 is the story of people of diverse heritage who have made this area their home. From the earliest days, inventors, entrepreneurs, artists, and a strong workforce have found Broome County to be a fertile terrain for achievement. Traditions have not been squandered on conformity but rather have been cherished and shared. Some well-known landmarks appear in this book; however, the majority of the images are previously unpublished. Included are rare interior views of early-twentieth-century factories and scenes of people at home and on the move-all silent witnesses to the "good old days." Accompanying the photographs are historical narrations abstracted from verbal accounts, letters, diaries, and newspapers-memories and legends rich with reality.

I liked this book in the fact that it has a wide variety of pictures that captured all aspects of live in Broome County. I bought it to help in my research for a final paper I was writing on Binghamton. The only thing it really helped in were the pictures; very few write ups in the book. Mainly to use for the pictures.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
