A land of serenely bucolic landscapes, of fox hunts, debutante cotillions, peaceful plantations, and stately historic tours, Virginia also dazzles with its diversity. Where else can one leave the glistening strand of Virginia Beach for the airy splendor of the Blue Ridge Mountains? What other state boasts both legendary Jamestown—site of England's first permanent colony in the New World—and rustic Chincoteague Island, second home to wild ponies descended from horses that swam to safety after a Spanish galleon sank? Indeed, Virginia is the site of many of America's most famous cultural landmarks and homes—Colonial Williamsburg, Appomattox Court House, and Jefferson's classically proportioned Monticello, just to name a few.
Virginia, A Pictorial Souvenir is a marvelous photographic portrait that vividly captures this historic state. It guides the reader to such architectural splendors ad Danville's Millionaire's Row with its magnificent Victorian and Edwardian home, and spectacular sites such as the Natural Bridge in the Shenandoah Valley and the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway. These images and more make this book a perfect keepsake for anyone acquainted with the timeless charms of "Old Virginny."
