Beschreibung:
Troy is situated on the banks of the Hudson River, just ten miles from the state capital of Albany. Well known as the Collar City, it is the home of Uncle Sam and of the largest annual Flag Day parade. It is less well known as being the home of two National Baseball Hall of Famers, Johnny "the Trojan" Evers and Michael "King" Kelly. In its prime, Troy had more than sixty churches, fifteen breweries, and at least a dozen theaters. Troy in Vintage Postcards reveals through the postcard photographer's eyes what the city was like from the early to the mid-1900s, with a few added surprises from the late 1800s. It shows not only how much of Troy has changed but also how much has remained the same.
