When I first picked up [Historic Photos of Charlotte] I could not stop flipping through it. The pictures are amazing. What's even more amazing are how some of the buildings featured in the book are still around today. There are pictures of some of the men who created this town (most of whom have streets and schools named after them now). There are pictures of policemen in old uniforms, courthouses, churches and textile mills. The book is filled with tidbits of information I would have never known. I am glad to have come across this book, and it will be sitting on my coffee table for as long as my three year old will let it!
