About the Author

Author Ann Dunphy Becker takes the reader back through Houston from 1860 to 1900. This book is a look back at that crucial time in the evolution of the fourth largest city in the United States. The book chronicles the time during which Houston went from being a small frontier town, to a railroad center of Texas, a place of commerce and industry, a place truly worthy of Sam Houston's name.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By K. Searle on March 22, 2010
Format: Paperback
Another wonderful pictorial history from Arcadia Publishing and their Images of America Series. This history takes the City of Houston from the period just before the Civil War to the beginning of the 20th century. The book's author, Ann Dunphy Becker, has illustrated "Houston: 1860-1900" with hundreds of rare old photographs taken during this unique period in Houston's history. Many of these photographs are from private collections.

Between 1860 and 1900, Houston developed into a major railway center and an international port of call that would allow Houston to eventually become the fourth largest city in the United States of America. With every photograph, author Ann Dunphy Becker has included many fascinating anecdotes and historical details. "Houston: 1860 - 1900" is a wonderful visual feast that will transport you back in time to when the City of Houston was young. K.K. Searle-Texas History Page.

This is a wonderful book. The pictures are sensational, and they depict early American life in the southwestern part of the country.
