Description - Charleston by Stan Bumgardner

Take a trip back in time and see how downtown Charleston, West Virginia, looked nearly 100 years ago. This new book is the most complete collection of historic Charleston postcards ever published. The images illustrate how Charleston grew from a small town to become the state capital and a thriving commercial center, and each postcard offers a nostalgic look back at the 20th century. Charlestonians will fondly recall many of the buildings that no longer exist, such as the old public library, Ruffner Hotel, and Charleston National Bank. Likewise, postcards of Capitol Street will evoke memories of once-bustling shops, like Diamond Department Store, McCrory's Five and Dime, and S. Spencer Moore. These postcards freeze moments in time, taking readers on a stroll through downtown Charleston in the early 1900s.
