Special Order—Subject to Availability

Springfield chronicles the town's history from 1890 to the present with over two hundred historic photographs collected by author Harry Laybourne over the past 43 years.

Referred to as Champion City, Home City, and City of Roses, Springfield's diversity and
pride inspires various nicknames from its residents.
First settled in 1799, Springfield quickly grew to
become one of Ohio's most important industrial towns, the products of its great factories encircling
the globe. Laybourne gives the reader a chance to experience what Springfield was like in the Good Old Days with fascinating scenes of its people and places--the lively downtown area, its beautiful parks, theaters and opera houses, swimming beaches, universities, bustling factories and businesses, as well as views of several buildings that no longer line the streets of downtown Springfield.
