Overview

Paterson has been a place of comings and goings for generations. Images of America: Paterson explores the city's past with vintage photographs and interesting history and folklore. Some notables associated with the Silk City include Larry Doby, who broke the color barrier in the American League; shuttle astronaut Kathryn Sullivan; and actress Sue Ann Langdon. An industrial giant envisioned by Alexander Hamilton, Paterson gave birth to the famed Colt revolver, the modern-day submarine, the locomotives that linked America's coasts, and the engine that powered Charles Lindbergh's Spirit of St. Louis. Also included are historic buildings such as the Fabian, the theater that Lou Costello frequented for premieres, and Paterson's Danforth Library, designed by architect Henry Bacon, creator of the Lincoln Memorial.

    BEAUTIFUL COLLECTION OF HISTORY

    I was born and raised in Paterson, NJ. This book just shows you how much beauty is really in this city, things have gone down the drain now. But it is fun to see what it once was and what once stood. Beautiful pictures are provided. FIVE STARS!
