Product Overview

Authors Sue Greenberg and Jan Kahn once again delve into Asheville''s rich past. This new companion to the acclaimed Asheville: Volume I resumes our look at this colorful city in the mountains. In its early days, Asheville quickly developed into a resort getaway for those seeking fresh air and high society during the late 1800s. This intriguing book continues our journey, this time taking us from the end of World War I to the 1960s. The over 200 rare postcards presented here show how Asheville emerged from a period of hard times brought on by a great flood and a country at war. Once World War I ended, a feeling of newfound freedom overtook Asheville''s citizens and the fast tempo of the earlier days soon resumed. Asheville once again became a destination for travelers--this time the automobile brought sightseers to the mountains and many new roadside motels and restaurants thrived.
