About this product
- DescriptionBlack-and-white images from the city s glorious past are showcased alongside eye-catching contemporary photographs of how the scene looks today The development of Indianapolis has taken more unexpected turns than a driver at its world-famous Speedway. Roaring to life after a rather inauspicious start, Indianapolis became kwn as the Crossroads of America during the early 1900s, with a bustling Union Station train terminal as well as a flourishing literary and artistic scene of nationally rewned poets, painters, and playwrights. Mansions were built along the showplace thoroughfare of North Meridian Street, pharmaceutical and automobile industries employed thousands, and jazz music was played into the night. Teenagers at Shortridge High School produced the nation s first high school daily newspaper, and many went on to become velists and politicians, including Booth Tarkington and Richard Lugar. The Hoosier capital occasionally veered off track; from the 1950s to the 1970s it was referred to as Naptown and India-NO-place. Indianapolis has picked up speed since the 1990s and is once again a vibrant city, warmly nicknamed Indy, with a spectacularly rejuvenated downtown. Residents have taken extraordinary care to preserve the best of the past, and have supported the development of new sports stadiums and retail outlets. Indianapolis Then and Now features historic places such as the Indiana Statehouse, the Soldiers and Sailors Monument, Lockerbie Square, and the Federal Building, as well as modern areas of interest such as the Mon Trail and Circle Centre, all showing the mixture of preservation and change in this historic city.
