Phoenix: Past and Present by Paul Scharbach & Robert Melikian
"Full-color, highly researched coffee-table book features stunning collection of vintage and contemporary photographs" Phoenix Past and Present, a full-color, highly researched book, tells the story of Phoenix through 84 pairs of side-by- side images, one historical and one contemporary. Extensive research was done to identify the photographer's vantage point in the historical image and to make the contemporary photograph from the exact same spot. Each pair of images includes a brief narrative providing historical background and the location of every photograph. This hardcover photography and history book by photographer Paul Scharbach and local historians Robert Melikian and John Jacquemart showcases the stunning growth of a great American city through an expansive collection of historical photographs spanning the late 1880s to the early 1960s, with many rare images never seen before.
