The ever-changing face of Watertown is captured in this fascinating collection of postcard images dating from the early 1900s to the present. The postcards in this book come primarily from the extensive collection of W. F. Jannke III. He has presented an entertaining history of the city, from the changing face of its business district to the different forms of recreation once enjoyed by its inhabitants. Other images highlight scenes of calamitous events, most notably the 1914 cyclone. All will find this work to be a most engaging guide to the way life was lived in Watertown in “the good old days.”
