Cedar Rapids: Downtown and Beyond (Then and Now)
The City of Five Seasons, formerly known as the Parlor City, is shown in this book as it developed from a small but thriving community into the metropolis that it is today. The railroads, roads, and waterways leading into and out of Cedar Rapids allowed the city to grow and prosper. The pioneers and early leaders, with great vision and foresight, planned and developed the area, including its wide downtown streets that allowed for easy access into the city. Photographs taken in the past are compared with photographs taken today from the same location, allowing us to see what and where changes have been made.
