Overview


Columbus: 1910-1970 begins when Columbus was an

industrial center and chronicles a pivotal time in this capital

city's history. During the years covered here, the city lost

many of its manufacturing enterprises and transformed into a government, education, research, and financial hub. Downtown Columbus was teeming with activity, making transportation to the city center vital. This volume ends as Columbus is in the beginning of a transformation that saw the accelerated development of suburbs and the dissipation of activities to outlying areas. In the vintage photographs in these pages, readers will also see the f lood of 1913, which claimed 100 lives and brought about flood prevention measures that forever changed the face of downtown Columbus.
