Description - Historic Photos of Grand Rapids by Karole Hazelwood

What began as a fur-trading post grew into the second-largest city in Michigan, a center for industry and the arts. As "Furniture Capital of the World" and an All-American City three times, Grand Rapids has a fascinating past. Historic Photos of Grand Rapids explores that past in images depicting a range of subjects, including the furniture industry, the Flood of 1904, recreational activities, the Pantlind Hotel, the original Ada Covered Bridge spanning the Thornapple River, civic celebrations, a 1941 Monroe Avenue, the 1889 County Building, and countless others. These striking black-and-white images are the pride of the Grand Rapids Public Library's History and Special Collections Department. Come take a tour through the pages of Historic Photos of Grand Rapids and discover the charm of bygone eras, the fortitude of the city's pioneers, and the richness of the old city.
