Nashville, TN, June 22, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- The History of St. Paul Told Through Historic Photographs.
As the capital of Minnesota, St. Paul has been an integral part of the fabric of United States history. Sharing the title of “Twin Cities” with Minneapolis, the story of St. Paul reflects both a united and progressive spirit and a unique culture that are the foundation of the city’s present-day prosperity and overwhelming popularity.
With fact-filled photo captions and chapter introductions by Steve Trimble, Historic Photos of St. Paul rediscovers the city’s fascinating past through nearly 200 rare photographs selected from the Minnesota State Historical Society and the Ramsey County Historical Society, showcased with exceptional clarity and beauty.
From Summit Avenue where Fitzgerald’s This Side of Paradise was written to the 1890s invention of “kittenball,” which eventually became softball, St. Paul shines through the decades in glorious black-and-white photography, displayed in a large format. This is a wonderful book for any travel, photography, or history enthusiast.
“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 St. Paul 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.
