This volume, Historic Photos of San Francisco in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, captures the revolutionary and tumultuous spirit of these historic times in stunning black-and-white photography. The book provides a retrospective view of ordinary citizens enjoying their daily lives in an extraordinary city, and illustrates the participants, protests, riots, triumphs, and tragedies of this extraordinary period in San Francisco and American history.

Backyard barbecues, fondues gathering everyone around a table, and not to mention cocktail parties were booming. From 1950's casseroles and hors d'oevres to more modern, adventurous dishes, there's plenty to celebrate and embrace! Each recipe is paired with a full-color, full-bleed finished dish photo.

In the decades of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s, one could wander through the city of Tampa and experience a rich variety of architectural styles, businesses, languages, and traditions, all mixed in with first-class universities, hospitals, and museums. By the 1950s, the University of South Florida was founded, and Busch Gardens opened to locals and tourists alike. The 1960s ushered in a period of construction and entertainment, with residents visiting for the first time the Lowry Park Zoo, Curtis Hixon Hall, and “The Big Sombrero,” or Tampa Stadium. Like the rest of the country, the 1970s in Tampa was a time of continued modernization and expansion. Though not immune to crime or misfortune in the thirty-year span, Tampa is remembered in Historic Photos of Tampa in the 50s, 60s, and 70s as an attractive destination and place of residence, as seen through the lens of the camera, a modern city that continues to honor its historical roots.

In 1950 Dallas was a spirited Texas town of some regional importance; by 1980 it was an international city, one of the nation's most populous, a center of trade, transportation, finance, pro sports, and popular culture. Historic Photos of Dallas in the 50s, 60s, and 70s documents this amazing transformation with seldom-seen photographs of the period. Nearly 200 historic images show Dallas in the process of refashioning its skyline, its streets, its institutions, its public behavior, and its sense of self and worth. Historic Photos of Dallas in the 50s, 60s, and 70s blends striking black-and-white images with crisp commentary to chronicle moments of joy, pride, and anguish during these tumultuous decades. This volume takes readers back to the not-so-long-ago Dallas of trolley buses, downtown movie theaters, and four-lane expressways, then shows how the city transcended its parochial beginnings to become one of the most dynamic American cities of the twentieth century.

History is more than dates and events. History is images often as mundane as a shopper buying vegetables or a lost view of a neighborhood transformed by development. In the three decades following the midcentury mark, Seattle photographers captured the city day-to-day, to have their exposures published once, or not at all, and then relegated to the darkness of an archive. Historic Photos of Seattle in the 50s, 60s, and 70s compiles photos that recover some of the memories. Mary Randlett and Josef Scaylea are widely known and highly regarded for their work with light and film, and their work appears here. For some photos, the names of city employees and other professionals of lesser note, but no less skill, can be credited. And for many, the photographer's name is lost to time, but his work endures.

Between 1950 and 1979, Birmingham, Alabama, experienced some of the most dramatic growth and change in its history. Booming suburbs, desegregation, the fall of steel and the rise of medical and educational research, a new emphasis on the fine arts, and other changes imparted to Birmingham a radical new look over that thirty-year period. Historic Photos of Birmingham in the 50s, 60s, and 70s highlights the changes that took place through pictures of busy shoppers, amusing advertising ploys, eager audiences, cultural achievements, towering buildings, influential citizens, new institutions, famous actors, and violent protests and demonstrations. Nearly 200 photographs, vividly reproduced in black-and-white with captions and introductions, give a clear idea of what the Birmingham landscape and environment was like during these years. This look back is the perfect reminiscence for those who remember the era and an ideal resource for those new to the city who may not.

Nestled in a valley beside the Tennessee River and surrounded by the southern Appalachian mountains, Chattanooga is truly Tennessee's most scenic city. With the experience of the Great Depression and World War II still strong in memory, and the legacy of the long-ago Civil War still percolating, Chattanoogans would grapple with the new realities of postwar America while preserving much of what had given the city its unique aura. In this companion volume to Historic Photos of Chattanooga, William F. Hull leads a tour past many Chattanooga landmarks from recent times, reminiscing with Chattanoogans who can remember and informing those new to the city who may not. Nearly 200 images reproduced in vivid black-and-white, with captions and introductions, show the Tivoli Theatre, Rock City, Dupont, Chickamauga Lake, Lovell Field, the Hunter Museum, Coca-Cola Bottling, Krystal, Erlanger Hospital, the Chattanooga Lookouts, radio legend Luther Masingill--still broadcasting today after 70 years--and, of course, the Chattanooga Choo Choo, among countless other subjects from yesteryear that remain key to the city's past and present.

In a nation reinventing itself following victory in World War II, Nashville's self-portrait blended old with new. New businesses and skyscrapers, a shopping mall, the Interstate system, school integration, and other changes would ultimately bring Nashville into line with the direction of the nation at large, but alongside nationwide trends were treasures unique to the city: Fair Park for thrill-seekers, Sulphur Dell for baseball fans, the Grand Ole Opry at the Ryman for music, and the Maxwell House for visitors still arriving through Union Station and now from the air at Berry Field. In this companion volume to Historic Photos of Nashville, Ashley Driggs Haugen leads a tour past many Nashville landmarks from the recent past, reminiscing with Nashvillians who can remember and informing those new to the city who may not. Nearly 200 images reproduced in vivid black-and-white show the Opry at the Ryman, construction of the L&C Tower, 100 Oaks Mall, the Municipal Auditorium, Harveys Department Store downtown, and countless other subjects from yesteryear that remain key to the city's past and present.
