Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From a city that was founded all the way back in 1706, to its distinct neighborhoods of Old Town and New Town, Historic Photos of Albuquerque is a photographic history collected from the areas top archives. With around 200 photographs, many of which have never been published, this beautiful coffee table book shows the historical growth from the mid 1800's to the late 1900's of this scenic city in stunning black and white photography. The book follows life, government, events and people important to Albuquerque history and the building of this unique city. Spanning over two centuries and two hundred photographs, this is a must have for any long-time resident or history lover of Albuquerque!

Book News Annotation:

With a one hundred year scope from 1880-1980, this book covers Albuquerque's history in photos (presented in an oversize, 10.5x10.5" format), including the city's early years as a railroad town and a sizeable section on World War II and the post-War era. There is little by way of text outside of descriptive captions of each b&w photo and a chronological introduction to each section written by Fye (assistant registrar, National Atomic Museum of Albuquerque). Even though each photograph is published within a section defined by time period, not all images include an approximate date, which would have benefited the book's organization. This publication is not academic in its approach but could be of wide appeal to local citizens or libraries, or enthusiasts of vintage photography.
