THE LATE 1800's many publications were produced depicting scenes of
towns and points of interest. These were simpler times in
America, when horse & buggy trotted the cobblestone streets and life
was at a slower pace. Photography was in its infancy and, for all but
the affluent who could afford to travel widely, these
publications were the only way to see these wonderful sights.
From the mid 1870's to the early 1890's lithographers Glaser & Frey of Germany artfully created 'view books' of the scenes depicted in these types of photographs. These books were published by several American companies, and have proven to be a significant pictorial source for American history.
Some of this
wonderful historical record has survived for us to enjoy today.
History's Imprints has taken the task to preserve on CD-ROM the
beautiful images and historical importance of these late 19th century
views into America's past.
