Remembering Main Street: An American Album

SKU: 9780670847846
by Pat Ross

Throughout this book, fascinating historical photographs, drawings, and postcards narrate the story right along with the text. Author Pat Ross grew up in Main Street America, and here she returns to explore how Main Street itself grew up–commercially, culturally, and architecturally. By investigating the histories of the corner drugstore or courthouse, for example, or by profiling local merchants, artists, and town legends–both heroes and scoundrels–the author evokes the special spirit of these towns, showing how each represents some phase of American history and how each has weathered adversity and given new life to its economy
