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.
Very interesting reading about the early years - used to hang out down there in the 80s. Love the river.
An interesting look at the history of Cleveland's Flats
