Overview

Saginaw is the hub of mid-Michigan and had its beginnings in the 1820s with the establishment of Fort Saginaw near present-day Court and Hamilton Streets. Owing to the lumber industry, two separate cities developed along the banks of the Saginaw River: the west side city of Saginaw and East Saginaw. Intense rivalry resulted in rapid population growth and many civic improvements for both. Consolidation of the Saginaws occurred in 1890, and continued prosperity followed the ebb and flow of the lumber and automotive industries. History teacher and photographer Kevin Mark Rooker has been fascinated with the history of Saginaw. He turned his collection of postcards and photographs into a then and now PowerPoint presentation and shared it with hundreds. Here now is what Saginaw once was and, with vision and cooperation, what it can be again.

Comparing our present to our past is how we understand our history. Arcadia's Then & Now series makes such local comparisons available. Books in this series offer a special view of American life by placing historical images side by side with contemporary photographs.
