Editorial Reviews

As someone who has worked in some capacity with Columbus Metropolitan Library staff in the past, I can't tell you how happy I am to see some of the many great things they've collected over the years about Columbus become more publicly accessible like this. They do such tremendous work, and are so dedicated to keeping local history alive, that I'm sure they love this book being available.

Like I said, for someone with an interest in Photography and History, with ties to Columbus, this would be a great pickup or a great gift! I enjoyed leafing through the book, and learned more about Columbus and it's history through these photos than I knew before. I highly recommend it!
