Overview

From its birth to the present, Oklahoma City 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 best-selling book Historic Photos of Oklahoma City, Larry Johnson provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of the city. Remembering Oklahoma City captures this journey through still photography selected from the finest archives. From the Land Run of 1889 to the city’s contribution to national defense during World War II and the postwar era beyond, Remembering Oklahoma City 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.
