Overview

By the mid nineteenth century, the city of Indianapolis was a vibrant cultural center. Through the Civil War, the early twentieth century, two world wars, and into the modern era, Indianapolis 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 Indianapolis, George R. Hanlin provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of Indianapolis. This volume, Remembering Indianapolis, captures this journey through still photography from the finest archives of local, state, and private collections. From the nineteenth century to the building of a modern metropolis, Remembering Indianapolis follows life, government, education, and events throughout the city’s history. The book captures unique and rare scenes through the lens of more than a hundred historic photographs. Published in vivid black-and-white, the images communicate historic events and everyday life of two centuries of people building a unique and prosperous city.
