Columbus 1910 - 1970 Book By Richard E. Barrett
Columbus: 1910–1970 begins when Columbus was an industrial center and chronicles a pivotal time in this capital city’s history.
During the years covered here, the city lost many of its manufacturing enterprises and transformed into a government, education, research, and financial hub. Downtown Columbus was teeming with activity, making transportation to the city center vital.
This volume ends as Columbus is in the beginning of a transformation that saw the accelerated development of suburbs and the dissipation of activities to outlying areas.
In the vintage photographs in these pages, readers will also see the flood of 1913, which claimed 100 lives and brought about flood prevention measures that forever changed the face of downtown Columbus.
