(Pictured on the front cover is Griffith Ladies Wear, Millinery, and Dry Goods at the NW corner Fourth and Main in July 1887. There is a bank at this location today.)
Even for those who specialize in local history, you'll likely learn some new things, such as:
- What was "Project 75" and how does it impact you today?
- Who was Eddie Eagan?
- Did you know that Gibson Manufacturing manufactured over 60,000 tractors on east 9th Avenue in the 1940's to early 1950's?
The Library has three copies: two in circulation (978.863 LON) and one for reference-only. And it is for sale at the Times-Call (the picture there makes the book look a lot weightier than it really is!)
Summary: Great introduction to Longmont for any residents curious about local history and the things that have shaped their surroundings.
