Download and read online Nameless Towns in PDF and EPUB Sawmill communities were once the thriving centers of East Texas life. Many sprang up almost overnight in a pine forest clearing, and many disappeared just as quickly after the company "cut out" its last trees. But during their heyday, these company towns made Texas the nation's third-largest lumber producer and created a colorful way of life that lingers in the memories of the remaining former residents and their children and grandchildren. Drawing on oral history, company records, and other archival sources, Sitton and Conrad recreate the lifeways of the sawmill communities. They describe the companies that ran the mills and the different kinds of jobs involved in logging and milling. They depict the usually rough-hewn towns, with their central mill, unpainted houses, company store, and schools, churches, and community centers. And they characterize the lives of the people, from the hard, awesomely dangerous mill work to the dances, picnics, and other recreations that offered welcome diversions.

Download and read online The A to Z of Old Time Radio in PDF and EPUB The term Old Time Radio refers to the relatively brief period from 1926, when the National Broadcasting Company first began network broadcasting, until approximately 1960, when television became the dominant communication medium in the United States. During this time, radio was as popular and ubiquitous as television is today. It was amazingly varied in the types of programming it offered; many characters and programs were so popular that virtually everyone was familiar with them. Even today, recorded versions of these programs are still extremely popular and widely available, both from commercial outlets and from hobbyists. Behind the production of these programs was a complex technological and financial infrastructure that had to be developed virtually from scratch in a world unaccustomed to the rapid communication and technological marvels that we take for granted today. The A to Z of Old Time Radio provides essential facts and information on the Golden Age of Radio. This is accomplished through the use of a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on the radio networks, programs, directors, producers, writers, actors, radio series, and radio stations. Entries on your favorite shows The Lone Ranger, The Shadow, Dragnet, and Suspense and actors Bob Hope, George Burns, Gracie Allen, and Edgar Bergen will have you jumping from one entry to the next as you relive old favorites and discover hidden treasures from the Golden Age of Radio."

Download and read online Washington Georgia in PDF and EPUB A community once known as the "Golden Buckle of the Cotton Belt," Washington, Georgia, was chartered during the Revolutionary War and was witness to both the birth of two-party politics in Georgia and the last days of the Confederacy. Washington grew up into a sophisticated and cosmopolitan city in the antebellum South, and is today one of the state's most historic places. In this engaging visual retrospective, readers will discover the Washington of days gone by in vintage photographs, many of which have never been published before. From the achievements of prolific leaders such as Robert Toombs and Garnett Andrews to the distinctive architecture of the city's earliest homes and buildings, this volume contains many treasured memories. Both longtime residents of Washington and visitors to the area will delight in this collection of images, culled from the Mary Willis Library, the Washington Historical Museum, and numerous private collections. Coupled with informative captions, the photographs serve as a reminder of the city's past as the community continues to look toward a promising future.
