Overview

With a selection of fine historic images from his bestselling book Historic Photos of Dallas, Michael V. Hazel provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of Dallas. During the mid nineteenth century, Dallas emerged as a vibrant, commercial American city. At the turn of the century, Dallas continued to prosper, overcoming adversity and becoming a leading center of commerce in the southwestern United States. Remembering Dallas captures this journey through still photography selected from the finest archives. From the Civil War and the Great Depression, to the building of a modern metropolis, Remembering Dallas follows life, government, education, and events throughout the city’s history. This volume captures unique and rare scenes as depicted in more than 100 historic photographs. Published in striking black-and-white, these images communicate historic events and everyday life of two centuries of people building a unique and prosperous city.
