The scenic town of New Albany lies along the banks of the Ohio River, opposite Louisville, Kentucky. Founded in 1813 and incorporated in 1839, New Albany grew to be the largest city in Indiana by the mid-1800s. Its location below the falls of the Ohio River boosted shipping and boat-building and promoted the building of some of the city’s most notable residences, many of which still stand along Main Street. Through more than 200 vintage postcards, authors David C. Barksdale and Robyn Davis Sekula guide the reader on a tour of New Albany’s past. The images highlight the city’s early schools and churches and its first library. Others juxtapose flooding disaster and centennial celebration.Barksdale, David C. is the author of 'New Albany In Vintage Postcards ' with ISBN 9780738533865 and ISBN 0738533866.
