Historic Frankfort: Yesterday & Today (Second Edition)

Historic Frankfort: Yesterday & Today (Second Edition)

This book is formatted as a visual trip down some of Frankfort’s most used byways. The reader automatically gets updated from the past, confronted by historic images of trolley tracks, horse-drawn vehicles, unpaved streets, awning-covered entrances, telephone poles, and wooden bridges. Through the photography of Dr. Gene Burch we explore the 21st Century Frankfort of today.
