10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Gustavo A. Mellander, Ph.D., D.H.L. on February 23, 2010
Format: Hardcover
The photographs are amazing.

How wonderful that the earlier ones have been saved and are now replicated here so they can be enjoyed by us and indeed by future generations. The photos capture an age and a history gone forever.

Yes, time marches on and the pictures of the present realities are at times depressing. But is it pleasant to have visual memories of one's memories. Those who don't have the earlier memories can learn from this book of times gone by.

The book would be a great present for grandparents and yes, for grandchildren as well. Understand and preserve the past!!

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Mayra I. Pollock Cosme on January 24, 2010

As a Puerto Rican, it was quite a treat to see historical landmarks the way they were and then compared to their present state. I loved the photos and the journey they have inspired! Now I plan weekends to see and compare some of the sites in the books that are not in my hometown. A must for those who love history, architecture and Puerto Rico. This book is also good if you are taking a history of Puerto Rico class as it will make history more real and will help in visualizing the social-political context of the events you'll be studying.

I first saw the 2009 Anova Books Ltd. version which contains pictures of El Morro Officers Club, the El Morro swimming pool, the Army Beach, etc. The second version is 2013 Thunder Bay and was disappointed to discover these pictures (and probably others) were excluded. I prefer the original.

This book is excellent for the people who like photography, architecture, and history. What Rigau wrote about each photo is very educative. Search for his other books.

Great for today's generation who were born in the USA whose parents/grandparent were from PR when they tell you of what life was like in PR. Now you can actually see what they were talking about and not just imagine it. Wonderful to sit down with them and hear the "old" stories come to "life" again as you go thru the book together. It is like going thru an olf family album. Sit down and record these memories.....they will not happen again.

I gave out this book for Christmas and it was a total success! Of course you have to be (or live) in Puerto Rico to truly appreciate it.
