Take a trip back in time to visit the greatest city on Earth as it was back in the day.
Imagine New York City before the flashing lights, traffic, and congestion. New York in the 19th Century: A Dramatic Collection of Images contains hundreds of contemporary images, engravings, maps, and photographs of New York City from a bygone era.
Many of the buildings and locations featured in this massive book are no longer there, and others are now surrounded by skyscrapers and the modern world. Lovers of New York will be enthralled to see their city as it once was through the eyes of many talented artists from the mid to late 1800s. Travel back in history to see the Brooklyn Bridge when it was new, and New York Bay before familiar landmarks such as the Verrazano Bridge and Statue of Liberty. Stop by 19th-century Coney Island when Coney Island was already a favorite New York establishment!
Assembled and designed by Mark Bussler, writer of Westinghouse and The World’s Fair of 1893 Ultra Massive Photographic Adventure series, this monstrous coffee table-commanding tome of pictures sends readers on a pleasant stroll through history.
