By Robin Friedman HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on May 6, 2008
Format: Paperback
Located about two miles north of the White House at the intersection of Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire Avenues, the Dupont Circle area of Washington D.C is a promise of what urban life can be. With its diverse and active population, its colorful,flamboyant and changing character, its ambience that combines the old and the new, its opportunites for both high seriousness and fun, the area has long been my favorite part of the city in which I have lived for over 30 years. It is an ideal place for a leisurely walk on the main thoroughfares and the side streets.

The heart of the area is Dupont Circle itself with its magnificent fountain. The Circle is a place of constant traffic with the cars around it and with people passing through. At all hours people sit close to the fountain or around the park's perimeters playing chess, reading, sleeping, being with a loved one or with children, flirting, or just hanging out. It is urban life in microcosm.

Paul Williams has written his photographic history of Dupont Circle as part of the Images of America Series which celebrates neighborhoods across the United States. Williams is a local architectural historian who has prepared several books on D.C. neighborhoods for Images of America. He resides in the Dupont Circle area.

Williams's collection of photographs and his detailed annotations offer an excellent overview of the history of Dupont Circle, focusing on its earlier years. Until the 1870s, the area remained rural and was on the outskirts of Washington, D.C. With the influx of population following the Civil War, the area became studded with large mansions owned by the wealthy and powerful.
