    Great Local History Book

    I really enjoyed not only the pictures, but the interesting factiods. I wasn't born in Tyler, but have been here for many years - the pictures reminded me of some things that I had forgotten and showed me some new things about Tyler. I would highly recommend this book to everyone who live and have visited here.

    Interesting and Informative Pictorial History!!!

    A wonderful book for interesting historical pictures and reviews of events of Tyler, Texas past. I really enjoy the fascinating photos that transport me to places and times that are long gone. If you live in Tyler like me, it's a must have book, but it would be equally interesting to people who don't live here. Highly recommended!
