Overview
Images of America: Howell features vintage photographs of Howell, most of which have never before been published. This visual documentation spans the decades from the 1850s to the 1950s, telling the story of Livingston Centre, known today as the city of Howell. Unique images in this volume include turn-of-the-century street fairs and parades, the first paving of the Grand River, and World War I inductees marching to the courthouse to be sworn in to federal service. Furthermore, historically significant photographs document Howell's cultural keystones: the courthouse, Carnegie Library, and the Opera House. Also, see views of the Ann Arbor and Pere Marquette railroad depots, street scenes, merchants, businesses, industry, and social organizations that illustrate Howell's evolution from a tiny settlement to a vibrant and thriving city.
