About this title

Synopsis:

Columbus has been uniquely positioned to take advantage of booming industry and trade throughout its history. Established in 1828 on the fall line of the Chattahoochee River, where the Piedmont Plateau meets the Coastal Plain, Columbus owes much of its success to the river; yet, there is much more to the city and its identity. Images of America: Columbus uses vintage images to explore the city’s past in an effort to capture “what progress has preserved.” This photographic collection travels back through time to take an intimate look at how Columbus transformed from a frontier town into the redefined and revitalized city that it has become. These photographs capture businesses, churches, busy street corners, and other city landmarks, as well as more personal glimpses of individuals, families, and homes. By revisiting the heart of the city, readers are offered a chance to easily imagine Columbus’s past as if it were still alive today.

About the Author:

Author David M. Owings is an archivist at Columbus State University. He has selected a wide range of images from the collections of the Columbus State University Archives, the Columbus Museum, the Library of Congress, and private collections in order to represent the rich history of Columbus.
