Product Overview

With over three centuries of rich history, Norfolk is truly an Old Dominion original. With a bustling port and the world's largest navy base, Norfolk has served as a center for agriculture, transportation, manufacturing, and defense. Wars, epidemics, fires, economic depression, and suburbanization greatly reduced the development of the city over the centuries, and sadly, many of the relics and vestiges from Norfolk's past have been lost to time, but they are forever preserved in this remarkable collection of photographs from renowned local historian Amy Waters Yarsinske. Enjoy nearly two hundred stunning and rare images from the bygone days when Norfolk's downtown waterfront was lined with thriving storefronts, magnificent homes, striking architecture, and sailors in crisp white uniforms. From the remains of the great Jamestown Exposition to the
culturally diverse sidewalks of Ghent, take a walk down the streetscapes and riverbanks that interpret the life and sense of place of this old port city.
