Missoula (Then and Now)by Philip Maechling
Synopses & Reviews
In this survey of how Missoula has changed since the late 1800s, important historic sites in the city and environs are showcased in vintage and modern imagery.
Book News Annotation:
This slim collection of b&w photographs compares side by side images of historical Missoula to images of the city today. Most of the historical photos are from the early 1900s, when the arrival of the railroad ushered in a period of steady growth. Organized by location, the volume includes photos of Fort Missoula, the University of Montana, the US Forest Service, city streets, and photos of the outlying area. Cohen, a historian and Maechling, the Missoula historic preservation officer, include brief descriptions with each image. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
