If you ever wondered how Philadelphia grew into the city it is today this book is a great introduction without becoming a textbook. I keep this on my coffee table for guests along with a photo history of Philadelphia and people rave about it every time they come over.

Some information is unnecessarily repeated due to the book having various authors. Overall, it is interesting and informative.

I purchased this book as a gift for someone from Phiadelphia who moved away over 25 years ago and is now living in
the Atlanta Georgia area. He loves it! Brings back all the history of Philly.

This was a gift and the person seemed happy with it. However the customer service was very bad, very poor communication and somewhat rude.
