Overview

Springfield, Ohio (Images of America Series) by Harry C. Laybourne


Referred to as “Champion City,” “Home City,” and “City of Roses,” Springfield’s diversity and pride inspires various nicknames from its residents.
First settled in 1799, Springfield quickly grew to become one of Ohio’s most important industrial towns, the products of its great factories encircling the globe. Springfield is a compilation of historic photographs collected by author Harry Laybourne over the past 43 years. Using over two hundred images combined with historical explanations, this book chronicles the town’s history from 1890 to present. Laybourne gives the reader a chance to experience what Springfield was like in the Good Old Days with fascinating scenes of its people and places—the lively downtown area, its beautiful parks, theaters and opera houses, swimming beaches, universities, bustling factories and businesses, as well as views of several buildings that no longer line the streets of downtown Springfield.
