Houston 175 by Mike Tolson

It's rare to see me reading something other than horror but I found myself falling deeply in love with Houston 175 by Mike Tolson. Houston 175 takes you through the 175 year history of our very own Houston, Texas. Houston 175 features over 300 stunning photos from Houston area archives and photographers.

As a Houstonian, Houston 175 is a must read, if not must buy. There were some facts that I didn't know and it was great to learn more about the city I love. I hope you take a chance and read it. It is absolutely stellar!

Thanks for the suggestion. I

Thanks for the suggestion. I already have placed a request and am looking forward to checking this out. I too, love pictorial works, especially those about history. If you have not already read it, you might like "Historic photos of Houston," text and captions by Betty Trapp Chapman. It's one of my favorites.

I hope you enjoy it

I hope you enjoy it Christine! I really loved it and ended up buying it! I have already requested your recommendation, "Historic photos of Houston". Thanks so much and enjoy!
