Overview

By the mid nineteenth century, the city of Columbus was a vibrant cultural center of the North. From its birth to the present, Columbus has consistently built and reshaped its appearance, ideals, and industry. Through changing fortunes, the city has continued to grow and prosper by overcoming adversity and maintaining the strong, independent culture of its citizens. With a selection of fine historic images from his bestselling book Historic Photos of Columbus, Nick Taggart provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of Columbus. Remembering Columbus captures this journey through still photography selected from the finest archives. From early days to the recent past, Remembering Columbus follows life, government, education, and events throughout the city’s history. This volume captures unique and rare scenes through the lens of more than a hundred historic photographs. Published in vivid black-and-white, these images communicate historic events and everyday life of two centuries of people building a unique and prosperous city.
