Over 230 photos of Mathews County scenes tell stories from the 1800s through the 1980s. Businesses, industries, modes of transportation, homes, fashions, schoolhouses, celebrations and windmills are pictured with captions.

A picture is worth a thousand words may be an old saying, but this book of photos proves it true. One views business places that used to be; how families gathered, doctors at work, family pets, farming with horses, logging with oxen and a steam-powered sawmill. There are pictures of fashion changes, social life and celebrations, schools including activities from 1875 onward, industry and means of transportation. Windmill and tide mill photos really take us to another era when top wages were $280 per month. One will see how Mathews County has made an impact in the world through pictures.
