This book should have been titled "Ships and Bridges of The Flats". The author focuses mainly on the various ships which were working in the Flats throughout it's history paying much attention to all the names they had, when they were built and when and where they were scrapped. The second topic covered in the book are the many bridges over the Cuyahoga river. And only small part of the book covers major turning points in the history of the Flats.

it's one of those arcadia books, with the sepia cover and general air of fast-to-market local nostalgia. but i thought this was well written and well researched, better than the usual fare for these titles. i also felt like author did a good job selecting images of the flats that aren't already pretty well-circulated.

I really liked all the info (and took notes) about the industry in this area, which I haven't visited yet. I was less interested in all the ships, but others would appreciate that, I guess! Read at the (beautiful!) Cleveland Public Library while a rainy day somewhat spoiled my trip there to photograph the city.
