Descrizione

In this new addition to the Images of America series,
Richard Bak takes us on a visual journey through Detroit s golden era, encompassing the first three decades of the twentieth century. It was during this time that the City of Detroit experienced its most rapid physical growth and underwent an unprecedented pace of social and technological change. Detroit: 1900 1930 contains nearly 190 illustrations, including studio portraits, snapshots, postcards, songsheet covers, and period advertisements. Collectively, these images evoke a past that is often too easily forgotten as older Detroiters pass away. As you thumb through the pages of this book, you will encounter such influential people as Henry Ford and other automotive pioneers who helped to put the world on wheels. Experience daily life as it was lived at the time of the First World War, and discover the major role Detroit played in this historic conflict. This volume highlights the wave of
immigration that occurred here at the turn of the century, when roughly half of the city s population hailed from other countries. Also featured are various scenes from the Roaring Twenties, the ill-fated experiment in Prohibition, and the effect of the Great Depression on the city s economy.
