Having been born and raised in Ashtabula, this was one of those books that I just had to buy. I'm under 30 years old, so I don't recall a whole lot of before my time, so this book really put things in perspective for me. I really enjoyed learning all about my hometown and seeing how things came to be. It was wonderful to see all of the old buildings and architecture that once stood. It really makes me long to be back in those days, in the time where Ashtabula was a prosperous, bustling city. I wish this book was about double it's size, because I wasn't ready to finish it. I think if you come from Ashtabula, this is a book you must have in your collection. I also believe that this is a great look into our fair little city that anyone would enjoy.

The content of the book was excellent, but about 1/2 the pages broken away form the binding and fell out the first time we opened it. I sent it back and hope to purchase another.
