Description

Over the decades of the twentieth century, Arlington experienced a dramatic transformation from a simple, rural community known as Alexandria County into a complex, bustling, urban center, one with a cityscape of high-rise apartments and commercial buildings. Though many know of the area s Civil War era connections, some of Arlington s most compelling and relevant history has taken place not under a divided union, but across the twentieth-century landscape, a time of unparalleled population growth, ethnic diversification, and economic development. This volume, with over 180 black-and-white photographs, takes readers on a unique visual journey into the Arlington of yesteryear and documents its evolving face over the twentieth century. Through this unique pictorial retrospective, readers will explore some of the county s early villages, such as Glencarlyn, Queen City, Cherrydale, and Barcroft, and will enjoy viewing the transition from the early trolley lines and Washington & Old Dominion Railroad, which first brought growth to the area, to an era known for the development associated with Metro. A visual treasure, Arlington contains scenes of Fairlington, Buckingham, and other developments that housed thousands of new residents beginning in the 1930s; images of places where residents shopped and worked, such as Parkington and Clarendon; and photographs depicting the urban development of Rosslyn, Crystal City, and Ballston."
