This book was a gift for a friend. She loved it. It has lovely pictures. One of the pictures, that I liked when I looked through the book was of a street sweeper (I believe in Providence.) My great great uncle was a street sweeper in Cranston before main streets were paved.

As a former Rhode Islander, in general I am pleased with this book, but I wish they'd cut three-quarters of the "esthetic white space." The author advises you to use a magnifying glass to check out the details of the photos; I'd advise making them larger in the first place. This is a book, not a modern art gallery. The photos themselves are super; so many I've never seen before, or angles I've never seen before, of Downtown Providence and Newport, including a sequence of the State House being built, and the cleared landscape before I-95 was built.

What this book needed? Twice as many pages! :-) I couldn't believe there wasn't a picture of the old meeting house in Cranston, or the exterior of the old Normal School, or more of the downtown shopping district, or a few more modern photos of the amusement parks.

Another gift purchase, but I did look through it, wonderful pictures of Rhode Island. Purchased as a gift for a Rhode Islander who has moved away. Know she will love it.
