Product Description

Wheeling Then and Now by Sean Patrick Duffy, Paul Rinkes

Book Description:

The convergence of the Ohio River, the National Road, a remarkable bridge, and the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad transformed Wheeling into a transportation hub. Fed by an influx of immigrant labor, the city prospered, adding industrial muscle. But global economic changes brought the machine to a sudden halt.

Author Bio: In Then & Now: Wheeling author Sean Duffy and photographer Paul Rinkes explore a city still recovering from that trauma, a city with a proud past and an uncertain but hopeful future.
