History told through postcards

July 31, 2005|By Josh Mitchel

Harford County Executive David R. Craig has released his first book, "Greetings from Havre de Grace," which he describes as a pictorial "history of the city through postcards." Craig, who co-wrote the book with local antiques dealer Mary L. Martin, wrote captions for the postcards, which feature Concord Point lighthouse, Tide water Marina and other land marks. "You can you see how the city has changed," Craig said. The 128-page book, published by Schiffer Publishing Ltd., was released this month and sells for $24.95. "There are some phenomenal decoy shots of people on boats, pictures of the old railroad stations," said John Klisavage, owner of Washington Street Books in Havre de Grace. "There are sections on the restaurants, on the waterfront, the boating, the historical homes." Craig will sign copies of his book Friday from 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. at Washington Street Books, 131 N. Washington Street.
