)-- The History of Delaware Told Through Historic Photographs.
Known as the “First State,” Delaware has been an integral part of United States history. The story of Delaware reflects a progressive and hearty spirit, with a rich multiple culture that is the foundation of the state’s present-day prosperity and allure.
With fact-filled photo captions and chapter introductions by Ellen Rendle, Historic Photos of Delaware rediscovers the state’s fascinating past through nearly 200 rare photographs culled from the Delaware Historical Society and the Library of Congress, all showcased with exceptional clarity and beauty.
From Bette Davis to JFK, Armistice Day to Vietnam protests, the boardwalk to Memorial Bridge, Delaware shines through the decades in glorious black-and-white photography, displayed in a large format.
“I appreciate the views of farmers and butchers at the farmer’s markets. There are a few old train station photographs that I love—they are beautiful shots and show a simpler time. I also love the construction views of the Delaware Memorial Bridge—what an engineering feat!” says author Rendle.
Historic Photos of Delaware 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.
