Title: Journey through South Oakland County
Publisher: Arcadia Publishing
New from Arcadia Publishing's Then & Now series is South Oakland County by Paul Vachon. Vintage images are compared and contrasted with modern-day photographs in this new book for a side-by-side look at local history in South Oakland County.
Chartered 18 years before Michigan's admission to the Union, Oakland County developed as a microcosm of the state: diverse, entrepreneurial, and prosperous. The unbridled success of the automotive industry in neighboring Detroit quickly spread north where well-to-do industry leaders located.
This vibrant community produced a quality of life rivaled by few other places. This book displays pivotal "Then and Now" scenes depicting the history of Oakland County, many with national impact.
Highlights of South Oakland County include:
• Lower Woodward
• Northwest Corridor
• Points North
• Farther Afield
