Overview


In the fast-paced world in which we live, the relationships among families and friends continue to be the bonds that hold our complex communities together. Located in the flourishing region of Northern Virginia, Loudoun County has experienced significant growth in recent years, but it is those essential ties, the determined character of the region's first inhabitants, and the importance of heritage to the generations that have followed that have truly shaped the area's singular personality. Documented in the contents of leather-bound picture albums, cardboard boxes, and dusty attic trunks, the most touching stories of the region are found in the collected everyday memories of its people. Loudoun County: A Family Album takes readers on an intimate tour of the county's major towns and small villages through the eyes of the people who lived and worked in these communities. From candid snapshots taken on family vacations and school outings to early photographs of the town's first farmers and entrepreneurs, this volume of over 200 vintage images captures the everyday lives of the citizens who have persevered to make their home the beautiful, diverse, and charming place it has become. Showcasing the work of both Winslow Williams, one of Loudoun's best and most prolific photographers, as well as the efforts of doting parents and grandparents, friendly neighbors, and enthusiastic playmates from throughout the area, this book provides a one-of-a-kind glimpse at the county from a uniquely personal perspective.
