Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 073854079X, Paperback)The rise and near destruction of Dayton in the early 20th century is chronicled in this visual postcard history. The postcards showcase some of the cityÂ’s unique commercial buildings, hotels, churches, and residences, many now long gone due to urban renewal and highway construction in the 1960s and 1970s. Landmarks featured include the National SoldiersÂ’ Home, built for veterans of the Civil War in 1868, and there is an entire chapter dedicated to the events of the 1913 flood that forever changed the face of the city. Over 200 postcard images were selected from the Dayton Metro Library and a number of privately held collections.
