Tamaqua Then and Now Second Edition

eBook (PDF), 160 Pages

Price: $19.99
This book is a collection of photographs/postcards—then and now—of the town of Tamaqua, Pennsylvania, where I grew up. I graduated from Tamaqua Area Joint Senior High School in 1961, worked for two years at the Evening Courier, a newspaper that no longer exists, then joined the U.S. Navy. Thanks to the G.I. Bill, I was able to go to Penn State and I never really returned to Tamaqua except for visits to family. So this book is a long overdue return visit. I collected old photographs and postcards of Tamaqua from many sources and then walked around town on two days in July 2009 taking new photographs of old sites. I did not use anything other than my eyes to attempt to match the new with the old. For the most part, I shot with a 10:20 lens because I believed that only a wide-angle lens would recapture the past. The camera actually captured much more than the originals, so I then cropped to more or less match.

    I received my copy of the book yesterday. Although the pictures and comparisons are good, I must say I was disappointed in the quantity. For thirty dollars I would have expected more. I believe the value to be around $10, certainly not $30. It may have been a $30 value if both Tamaqua books were packaged together. Disappointed consumer.
