Description

Founded in 1824, Ann Arbor got its name originally from Annsarbour in honor of the founders' wives, both of whom were named Ann. The Tree City boasts more than 50,000 trees and is home to the main campus of the University of Michigan. Historic Photos of Ann Arbor, a photographic history with images collected from the area's top archives, shows Ann Arbor's historical growth from the mid 1800s to the mid 1900s in stunning black-and-white photography. The book chronicles life, government, events, and people important to the city's history. Spanning two centuries and nearly two hundred photographs, this handsome coffee table book is essential reading for any lifelong resident or history lover of Ann Arbor.
