A glimpse of America past.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: American Odyssey (Hardcover)
I received the book today so haven't managed to look at all of it yet. Wonderful and quite fascinating photos of a time gone by. All the photos have a short sentence in English German and French besides them explaining where the photo was taken and the year. It really is a huge book, over 6Kg in weight and as another review mentions it does fold out flat without breaking/cracking the spine of the book when opened out - on a table in my case. It depends on what you enjoy, if you enjoy looking at how things used to be, the buildings, the dress of the time you will enjoy browsing this book. The photos are quite spectacular in their sharpness, and it does seem surreal to see people so clearly from a hundred years ago as if frozen in time, which they were of course. The book arrived extremely well packed, a box inside a box, inside a box, with the book in its own box with carry handle.
