Part "Lost Twin Cities," part photojournalist history book, I am transfixed by the vintage clothes, the fixtures, the epic hotel fires, and the bloodied bodies crumbled in car seats, sprawled out on bar floors and in living rooms. This book is a gem.
The pictures were hauntingly beautiful and detailed times and places that just can't be seen any longer. Even some of the darker images had their own draw and in each chapter, the pull to keep turning the pages to see what else one could discover was constant. It would be nice to see more books written and put together in this style as it gives a very unique point of view.
