Another interesting aspect of the material offered is the 'feel' one gains of the Era from the pictures of the old towns.
All of these photos provide one with an opportunity to project oneself back, in a nostalgic manner, into the Era. The book certainly has fulfilled its titled purpose of providing a fine compilation of historic photos of a large number of this illustrious group. It can provide a possible means of "putting a face together with an action". For the person with a more casual interest, this book can provide a pleasant and interesting trip "through the west like it used to be".
