The Gazette-Journal is compiling two books of photographs, Hometown Album, one each for Gloucester and Mathews County. They are expected to be available in softcover and hardcover by mid-November.
Each book carries as its subtitle each county’s unofficial motto: Gloucester, Land of the Life Worth Living, and Mathews: Happy Homes and Fertile Farms on Smiling Waters.
The books will have at least 130 pages each of historic and contemporary photographs from newspaper files that attempt to capture historic moments, favorite stories and memories of people and places of the past.
Until Oct. 15, softcover books are $20 and hardcover $25, not including state sales tax. Prices will go up by $5 each after that date, and shipping of each book is $6 extra.
