Local historians Cole Thompson and Don Rice have compiled an Inwood photo history book with the help of the local community.
The book, titled Lost Inwood, is set to hit the shelves on February 25th, 2019.
The publisher, Arcadia Press, is well known for photo histories of cities, towns and neighborhoods.
For the project Cole and Don have assembled an amazing array of photos spanning from around 1890 onward.
The authors delved deep into their private photo collections, but couldn’t have pulled this off without contributions from so many in the extended Inwood community. When word got out that a book was in the works virtual strangers mailed in precious photo albums, snapshots, and even time-worn recollections that added an extra layer of authenticity to the project. Contributors include Herb Maruska, Pat Farrell, Jason Covert, Clare Ann Gray, Joe Dynski, M. Frank, and many more.
