Overview

From its birth to the present, Toledo has consistently built and reshaped its appearance, ideals, and industry. Through changing fortunes, Toledo 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 Toledo, Gregory M. Miller provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of Toledo. Remembering Toledo captures this journey through still photography selected from the finest archives. From its rise as an important regional trade center after the Civil War to designing the first “jeep” for the war effort during World War II, Remembering Toledo 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.
