In the second half of the twentieth century, Atlanta became a pop music capital of the country. Former DJ Bill Lowery attracted a galaxy of talent and created an empire of music publishing, production and promotion. In 1956, the Lowery Music Company had its first million copy-selling hit single with "Be-Bop-a-Lula," by Gene Vincent. Under Lowery's direction, popular artists like Tommy Roe and Billy Joe Royal flourished. Audio engineer Rodney Mills teamed up with Lowery and future Atlanta Rhythm Section manager Buddy Buie to build Studio One, a recording studio that produced albums from legendary acts such as Joe South, Lynyrd Skynyrd, 38 Special and others. Andy Lee White and John M. Williams offer a comprehensive portrait of the vibrant postwar Atlanta music scene.

Between 1950 and 1979, Birmingham, Alabama, experienced some of the most dramatic growth and change in its history.

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.

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.

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.

Be they actors, comedians, singers, dancers, or talk show hosts and personalities, everyone from George Burns and Milton Berle to Jack Benny and Jackie Gleason to Sid Caesar and Caesar Romero ignited their own particular brand of “man-erisms.” In the process, they each inspired their own particular brand of audience to cheer them on—whatever their guise. This book will explore and celebrate the men who invented manliness, and became stars in the process.It also profiles such teenage heartthrobs as Leave it to Beaver's Tony Dow and The Partridge Family's David Cassidy, stars who left an indelible impression on a generation of young girls.
