Historian, archeologist, and author Don Rittner has spent half his life researching the city's history. He now details in photographs the changes that have occurred during the last century to Troy's architectural heritage. Troy can be used as a field guide to identify streetscapes and neighborhoods that no longer stand but remain in view through the miracle of photography.
