Overview

With a selection of fine historic images from his bestselling book Historic Photos of Lexington, W. Gay Reading provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of Lexington. From early on, Lexington earned a reputation for innovation in arts, commerce, and education. The frontier city’s accomplishments in education, architecture, and economics far exceeded the expectations of its eastern counterparts. Four wars and urban redevelopment have repeatedly altered the city’s landscape and culture. Through its changes, Lexington has endured and prospered through the persistence and innovation of its civic leaders. This volume, Remembering Lexington, captures the journey in still photography collected from the finest archives in private and public collections. The book follows life, government, education, and events spanning two centuries of Lexington’s history. It captures unique and rare scenes through the lens of more than a hundred historic photographs. The images portray the events and people important to Lexington’s history.
