If you are interested in local history, you'll really enjoy Lost Washington, D.C., a new photo book by Paul Kelsey Williams that highlights the noteworthy buildings and structures of DC that have been demolished due to instability, natural disasters and changing tastes. The book shows 150 never before published photographs of the vanished architecture in the nation's capital, profiling places like Center Market, the Baltimore & Potomac Railroad Station, Albaugh's Opera House, Francis Scott Key Mansion and the Northern Liberties Market. Lost Washington, D.C. takes a fascinating glimpse at the history of the nation's capital and is divided by time periods beginning in the 1860s and running through the 1990s.
