"Searching the vast photographic archives of the DeWitt Historical Society of Tompkins County (now The History Center in Tompkins County), the authors of 'Ithaca Then and Now' have chosen images that show an Ithaca, new York, that once was. These views depict a city of carriages and trolleys, of parades and celebrations, and of hotels, schools, theatres, and churches that no longer exist. Standing in the footsteps of the turn-of-the-century photographers, the authors show us these same views as they appear today. Some scenes haven't changed all that much; others are astonishingly different.
Filled with original research and colorful descriptions of the 90 photographs, 'Ithaca Then and Now' is of special interest to everyone concerned with our architectural heritage. it is a vivid documentary of a changing city.
