History of East St. Louis Told Through Photographs
- 07/11/2011

Arcadia Publishing

More Info on This Book: East St. Louis

The newest addition to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America is East St. Louis from local authors Bill Nunes and Andrew Theising. The book boasts more than 200 vintage images and memories.

On April 1, 1861, the people in the village known as “Illinoistown” went to the polls to choose a new name. On that day, with 183 votes for and 89 votes against, the map had a new place—a bustling town called East St. Louis. This wonderful collection of photographs and memorabilia (some published for the first time) shows the exciting history of this once-mighty industrial town, as well as the people who made it work and shaped its destiny.

Since its inception in 1993, the Images of America series has preserved and shared the history of hundreds of individual communities throughout the country. Each title records a town or city’s unique story through more than two hundred historic images. Due to the popularity of this series, it has expanded over time to include worthy local and regional historical topics including the examination and celebration of transportation, industry, architecture, ethnic groups and more.

Highlights of East St. Louis:
• Landmarks
• Events
• Commerce and industry
• Government
• Leisure time

Available at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers, or through Arcadia Publishing at www.arcadiapublishing.com or
