It's Only Ink!
Harpers Ferry: Then & Now
Dolly Nasby's book "Harpers Ferry: Then & Now" is full of photographs and tales from long ago. The photographs included are not generally seen by the public, as they are archived at the Harpers Ferry Historical Association.
Nasby has left no stone unturned. Throughout the 95-pages, readers will surely learn something new.
She covers areas of the lower and upper sides of Harpers Ferry, as well as everything that's inbetween, including photographs of Storer College, Shenandoah and Potomac rivers and bridges, Maryland Heights, the Maryland Shore, and the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal.
Lower Town is a lot like it was during 1859; High Street and Upper Town have changed - but not a whole lot. A visit to Harpers Ferry is like walking into the past. Its history is evident in every corner on every street.
"Harpers Ferry: Then & Now" captures all the wonderful resting spots, shops, and people of this charming little town. Nasby did a splendid job by including stories from those who live and who lived in this historic town.
