Arcadia Publishing: Want A Picture Book Of Your Hometown??


You really should click to this website and you will be amazed at the scope of the books published by Arcadia. There are books available for towns, places, hotels, events, ethnic activities and much more. All the book follow a format: same number of pages, same size, each to have certain number of photos, etc. And the average price is $22.00.

Arcadia lists 313 books for Washington State and 11 for Spokane.  (Early Spokane, Bridges of Spokane, Mount Spokane, African Americans of Spokane, Spokane Hot Rodding, Spokane International Railway, Spokane's Expo '84, North Western Journeys, Influential Women of Spokane and Cheney.)

My birth town is Kalamazoo, Michigan. Yep, there are four books for that place. We lived in Fairfield, California. Yep, one for for there. Dad was stationed at Mountain Home Air Force Base (just east of Boise) in Idaho and there is a book for that!

Much of my family history involves St. Louis, Missouri and (of course) there are 78 books for that place. 

Do check this out. You might be surprised.
