NEW BOOK: GALVESTON - A CITY ON STILTS

By

There is a new historical pictorial titled:

Galveston: A City on Stilts (General History: Texas) by Jodi Wright-Gidley and Jennifer Marines (Paperback - Oct 13, 2008)

It is primarily a selection of photos taken by a professional photographer named Zeva B. Edworthy, who lived in the city for about eleven years after the famous 1900 Storm.

The photos were inadvertently found by his daughter, Judith Wray. She had stored them along with other of her mother's possessions after her mother's estate was settled some years ago. When she found them recently, she donated them to the Galveston County Historical Museum.

Galveston:  A City on Stilts was a Christmas present from my lifelong friends, Victor and Judy Damiani

Those of you who have read my book, Bill Cherry's Galveston Memories or read my AR blogs, will remember Victor.  I analogized him as our Fonzie when we were growing up.

To my knowledge most of the photographs in Galveston:  A City on Stilts have not been seen by the public before.

Along with the photos are brief narratives written by the book's authors. Most appear to be accurate.

Every person interested in Galveston should buy this book.  It's well done, and the authors and those who helped them deserve our thanks.
