The Adams Publishing Group of newspapers is pleased to present a new heirloom-quality, 144-page hardcover coffee-table book, "Albemarle Memories: A Pictorial History of the mid-1800s through 1939."
This meaningful keepsake is a collaboration of journalists representing the Elizabeth City Daily Advance, Bertie Ledger-Advance, Chowan Herald and Perquimans Weekly, and will feature a glimpse of life in and around the counties that make up the Albemarle Region of Eastern North Carolina in stunning historic photos from the archives of local area historical organizations, as well as never-before-published submissions from our readers.
Just received the book a few days ago. Love the book. Will be fun to thoroughly review. So interesting to see how life was in those days.
Good quality and
interesting to look at.
I was amazed at the scope of the pictures--particularly the sources from which they had come. The printing is excellent--no dark pictures or my wondering what is actually in the picture. And they cover the Albemarle quite well--both geographically and in variety of categories. WELL DONE!
(Not part of the review: Is there a similar book that would cover Hyde County?)
