Posted May 31st, 2011 by Rhonda Sewell  Category: Arts & Entertainment

 

(Released May 27, 2011) – Join Vintage Aerial and the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library for a publishing party to celebrate the release of the book Vintage Sylvania from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, June 9 at the Sylvania Branch Library, 6749 Monroe St., Sylvania, OH.

Purchase in advance this guide of historic photographs showcasing the history of the City of Sylvania. The book price is $19.95.

Light refreshments will be served and this event is open to the public.

The Library and Vintage Aerial have joined to launch the Vintage Communities Book Series. Vintage Sylvania is the first book and is published with the generous support of Lourdes College. Vintage Aerial conceived this Book Series as its principals reflected on the riches contained in the company’s vast archive of historic aerial photographs. They believe the stories these photographs tell would be enhanced by presenting them in conjunction with the Library’s collection of historical maps and photographs. The Vintage Communities project will include three books centered on distinctive communities in the greater Toledo area – communities whose stories of change, growth and loss are compelling and well told in Vintage Aerial’s archives.

Vintage Aerial is a local company that provides museum-quality prints of historical photographs. The company uses its archives as the foundation for developing and preserving the history of rural America. The company’s archives contain 25 million photos from 41 states, spanning the second half of the 20th century.
