History of Abilene
Jack North and his new book Lost Abilene, a pictorial history of this West Texas area will be the program for our June 27, 2013 meeting. Lost Abilene is North’s second book in Arcadia Publishing’s Images of America series. His previous book in the series, Early Abilene featured photos of Abilene from its founding until about 1930. His new book includes more than 200 photos, with a brief informative description of the building or event depicted, making this a virtual tour of old Abilene.
North, a native Texan, member of Taylor County Historical Commission, president of North’s Funeral Home, licensed insurance agent, licensed real estate agent, commercial and instrument pilot, is also an avid collector of old Abilene photos, with over 4,000 slides in his collection. As North says, “Bless the pioneers and their families who took the time to record history with their cameras.”
Jack North will speak, show pictures and sign copies of Lost Abilene at the Abilene Writers Guild meeting on June 27, 2013 at 7 PM at the Rose Park Senior Citizens Center, 2625 South 7th Street, Classroom B, Abilene, TX.
