It has been over 350 years since Annapolis, Maryland, was founded, and it served as Maryland's state capital for over 310 years. Over 240 gorgeous colour photographs present poignant and picturesque views of sidewalk and harbour scenes, storefronts, houses, doorways, St John's College, and the well-known United States Naval Academy. The text provides a heartfelt and light-hearted narrative reminiscing on the author's childhood impressions of Annapolis. He also describes Annapolis today, as "Narrow streets, clapboards, Flemish-bond brickwork, bright and pastel painted doorways, an array of varied architectural styles and distinct details [that] all speak reverently of distant times long ago. Annapolis is like a cherished antique on display; she is finely crafted, preserved, and pleasing to the eye". See for yourself. This book is a must for all who love this harbour town.
