Disappearing Into North Adams

So I picked up Joe Manning's book this week.

I got it on eBay for $15.00.

It also contains some fantastic photos. I just wish it had even more of them. I would buy a book that was nothing but pictures of North Adams.

I was surprised to see that Manning has only lived in the city, occasionally working for The Transcript, for less than 10 years.

Anyways, it's a great book. If I see more copies floating around, I'll be sure to snap them up and pass them around.
