    This book is a great resource for anyone interested in historica

    This book is a great resource for anyone interested in historical locations and riveting stories about the people and places of Birmingham, AL. Having grown up in Alabama, I was familiar with some of the places so richly described by Ms. Crider, but many were completely unknown to me. I really enjoyed the contrast of the many old photographs of the buildings and locations and then up-to-date photos of what remains of some of them now. I was very pleased to note how many are now under the protection of individuals or historical societies and will, hopefully, be preserved for future generations. The interesting anecdotes from older people who remember the locations in their heyday made the book more complete. My husband and I plan to take a driving tour of the city in the near future to try to see as many of these locations as we can. In future printings, I hope the author will consider adding GPS coordinates for each location. I have already purchased two of these books (one e-book and one paperback) and plan to buy several more as gifts. Highly recommended!
