Summary

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. With a selection of fine historic images from her best-selling book Historic Photos of Grand Rapids, Karolee R. Hazlewood provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of this great American city. Remembering Grand Rapids explores that past in images depicting a range of subjects, including the furniture industry, the Flood of 1904, Union Depot, the Pantlind Hotel, civic celebrations, an "Aero Sled," G.A.R. conventions, Island Park, 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 Remembering Grand Rapids and discover the charm of bygone eras, the fortitude of the city's pioneers, and the richness of the old city.
