By Bob Blackburn, Windsor Publications, 1982, out of print.

Review: This 1982 book with commentary by Bob Blackburn contains a nice blend of text and images tracing the historical develpment of Oklahoma County. Unfortunately, toward the end, the book takes on a "commercial" flair with what amounts to commercial plugs for various companies operating in the Oklahoma County area, or so it seems to me ... how else (for example) might a reader characterize a full page (251) devoted to Willman's Furriers? Regardless, the paper quality is excellent, the images are sharp, and several are in color. This is not Bob Blackburn's best work, but, still, I'm glad to have it.
