Handsomely designed by Wilmington, Ohio publisher Orange Frazer Press, the 350-page book is filled with enough idyllic pictures of the neighborhood to qualify as a story book. But it also provides a readable, insightful history that will enrich local residents' knowledge of the development of Ridgewood and the larger Springfield community and shows how Ridgewood is grounded in the broader social and economic history of its time. Vignettes of life in early Ridgewood, an architectural guide to the homes there, and, inside the back cover, a sleeve that holds a 1931 map of Springfield and a copy of an early Ridgewood promotional map are special pleasures in Dallenbach's book.
Beautifully illustrated with handsome typography and photos adjacent to the appropriate text, her book on Ridgewood is as pleasant as a drive down one of the neighborhood's curving streets and as well realized as the development it describes. --Tom Stafford Springfield News-Sun
