9781592239696: Phoenix Then and Now (Compact) (Then & Now Thunder Bay)

From the moment it became Arizona’s capital in 1912, Phoenix has enjoyed steady population growth and commercial expansion. Today, Phoenix still continues to expand, due to mass migration, and it has the distinction of being one of the fastest-growing areas in the country. Phoenix Then and Now looks at the development of the city, with historical photographs placed side-by-side with contemporary views of the same locations that reveal a vibrant city, benefiting from wave upon wave of Easterners seeking sunshine in a culturally rich, urban setting. Amazing pictorial history of Phoenix, and the surrounding areas, filled with archival photographs of key locations paired with specially commissioned photographs of the same scenes as they are today. See the Heard Building, used for the opening shot of Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho. One of Phoenix’s first sky scrapers, the building is now used for stores and offices. Featured landmarks include the San Carlos Hotel, the Monahan Building, and the Orpheum Theatre.
