Not only the boyhood home of Mark Twain but also the "Crossroads of America," Hannibal, Missouri, is an idyllic river town with a rich history that is 200 years in the making. Hannibal: Bluff City Memories, 1819–2019 is a pictorial chronicle of the town's past—steamboats, Union Depot, picnics at the cave, and the old Mark Twain Bridge—and present—the Folklife Festival, historic floods, businesses, and stately residences. This expanded bicentennial republication of Hannibal, Missouri: Bluff City Memories features all of the images from the original work plus additional photographs.
