Overview


The themes of South Providence--urbanization, immigration, and industrialization--best characterize the nation's modern development. This volume reveals how a well-known Providence community worshipped, studied, worked, played, ate, and drank. The denizens of South Providence were an extraordinary mix. The geographic and demographic developments of the 19th century crafted the economically diverse, dense, and multicultural community of the 20th century. Today almost every major avenue still contains a varied mixture of residential, commercial, industrial, and institutional uses.

A picture book with captions more like a magazine (read: about an hour)but rich in history, landmarks and immigration. For those who are about 50yrs and older could appreciate.
