The book features the work of Baton Rouge's most famous photographers: Andrew Lytle, remembered for his poignant Civil War images of a town struggling to survive; Fonville Winans, known for his pictures of the growing city taken as he piloted his small plane above it; and David King Gleason, who captured the triumphs and tragedies of life in the river city. Coauthors Sylvia Frank Rodrigue and Faye Phillips have also written Historic Baton Rouge: An Illustrated History.
