This book consists of 72 short lively essays covering topics as diverse as mustard and the Yellow Cab Company. Each essay touches on issues that have helped define the community and is accompanied by an historical image and a contemporary color photo. Importantly, A to Z, is much more than a book. It is a bridge to the “on line” history of our community. Dozens of QR codes accompanying the articles allow readers to access the ever growing body of local history available on historically vetted websites. Whether it’s the odor of “Vinegar Hill” or the emerald necklace that comes with residence in our community, this new work will help build an understanding of why our city is what it is.
