Turner Publishing is proud to announce the new release, Historic Photos of Ann Arbor by Megan Cooney and Alice Goff, a 10x10 large format pictorial narrative of the history of Ann Arbor through culled-from-the-archives, black-and-white photographs.

Nashville, TN, December 03, 2007 --(PR.com)-- The History of Ann Arbor Told Through Historic Photographs:

From its incorporation in 1833 to its status as the home of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor has been an integral part of the fabric of United States history. The story of this dynamic city reflects both a diverse and progressive spirit, and a unique culture that is the foundation of the city’s present-day prosperity.

With fact-filled photo captions and chapter introductions by Megan Cooney and Alice Goff, Historic Photos of Ann Arbor rediscovers the fascinating past of the “Tree City” through nearly 200 rare photographs culled from the Bentley Historical Library at the University of Michigan, showcased with exceptional clarity and beauty.

From railroad companies to the Old West Side, the Allenel Hotel to the My-T-Fine Cafe, the University of Michigan student to local residents, and much more, Ann Arbor shines through the decades in glorious black-and-white photography, displayed in a large format.

“This book is unique for two reasons,” explains publisher Todd Bottorff, “the high quality of printing and binding and the fact that many have never seen these photos.”

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