New from Arcadia Publishing is Marietta Revisited, by local authors and newspaper veterans Joe Kirby and Damien Guarnieri. Marietta Revisited is part of Arcadia’s popular Then & Now series and contrasts modern day photos with historic images that chronicle the area’s past.
Marietta is one of the largest and most historic cities in northwest Georgia. Some of that history has been preserved but much of it, unfortunately, has been lost to “progress,” as the photographs in Then and Now: Marietta Revisited attest.
Highlights of Marietta Revisited:
• Virtually all of the photos in the book are from local sources
• Authors have nearly 35 years experience covering Marietta and Cobb County with the Marietta Daily Journal
• Photographer Damien Guarnieri tried to recreate the mood and settings of the original shots
• Makes a fantastic holiday gift – very affordable and educational
