Turner Publishing announces the new release, the Historic Photos of Connecticut by Sam L. Rothman. This 10x10 volume showcases the pictorial narrative of Connecticut through stunning, culled-from-the-archives photography.

Nashville, TN, October 18, 2008 --(PR.com)-- The History of Connecticut Told Through Historic Photographs.

Small in size but rich with history, the state of Connecticut is symbolic of all that is timeless, treasured, and quintessentially American.

With fact-filled photo captions and chapter introductions by historian Sam L. Rothman, Historic Photos of Connecticut rediscovers the state’s fascinating past through nearly 200 rare photographs culled from the Library of Congress, University of Connecticut, Connecticut State Library, Central Connecticut State University, Eastern Connecticut State University, Bristol Historical Society, and the Stafford Historical Society, showcased with exceptional clarity and beauty.

From the story of the “Charter Oak” and the state capitol’s golden dome to Mark Twain’s Hartford home and the USS Nautilus, and much more, Connecticut shines through the decades in glorious black-and-white photography, displayed in a large format. This makes a great book for any history, travel, or photography enthusiast.

“Photos remind us who we are and where we have been. As we ponder the problems of urban poverty, crime and education in Connecticut’s cities, images of the past help us understand how these problems emerged,” says author Rothman.

Historic Photos of Connecticut is part of Turner Publishing’s Historic Photos series. These books highlighting the history of the great cities, pivotal events, and legendary figures across America, have been acclaimed as a staple in the collection of anyone who loves history.
