BURLINGTON

The Society's new book of Burlington photographs has been published and is now available for sale.   The book, titled "Burlington," is part of the Images of America series published by Arcadia Publishing Co. of Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina.

About 230 of the thousands of photographs in the Society's collection are featured in the 128-page soft-cover book, together with captions describing the scenes and giving some history of the subjects shown in the photographs.  A short historical sketch of Burlington introduces the images.  The photographs are grouped in seven categories:
              -- Cityscapes and Street Scenes
              -- Stores, Shops, and Business Vehicles
              -- Manufacturing and Processing Plants
              -- Houses - From Humble to Grand
              -- Churches and Schools
              -- Landmarks and Municipal Facilities
              -- Nearby Lakes

The book makes local history available to everyone.  A meander through the pages will bring revelation for the young folks and both recollection and reminiscence for the young at heart.
