Memphis rests on the east bank of the Mississippi, a river that has altered its course many times. Memphis has also changed over the years, expanding and maturing with each new decade. From the days when cotton was king, through the yellow fever epidemics of the late 19th century, to the building boom of the 1920s, Memphis has adapted to its changing cultural environment. Through historic photographs, Then and Now: Memphis illustrates how the city has changed over the years. This pictorial retrospective revisits historic Memphis sites and offers comparative photographs of the locations in both past and present times.

About the author (2005)

Author Robert W. Dye, whose family has called Bartlett home for more than 100 years, has drawn on family photographs, museum archives, and oral interviews to create a history of Bartlett that shows not only its agricultural roots but also its people and their story. Dye is the museum director of the Bartlett Gotten House. This is his fourth Arcadia title; he previously authored Images of America: Shelby County, Images of America: The Mid-South Fair: Celebrating 150 Years, and Then & Now: Memphis.
