Norfolk County


A major player in the country's development, Norfolk County possesses a unique history, one that reflects the many challenges and accomplishments that America has experienced since the country's birth in the late eighteenth century. The county's citizens have weathered a variety of storms, both natural and manmade, ranging from hurricanes, floods, British occupation and attacks, Federal occupation, and aggressive civic annexation, and have created a beautiful and useful landscape, appealing to both the artist's eye and industrialist's practicality.
This volume, with over 200 black-and-white images, takes readers into one of the Tidewater region's most historic locations and into an age made memorable by its unpaved roads, its early streetcars and horse-drawn wagons, its lively waterfront district on the Elizabeth River, and its emerging cityscape bordered by picturesque dairy farms. A rare visual journey, Norfolk County explores, through word and image, the area's diverse past, touching upon many elements of everyday life, including scenes of early one-room schoolhouses, historic churches, well-known industries, lush countrysides, and life along the river, as well as capturing vintage views of Great Bridge, Deep Creek,
and the Great Dismal Swamp.
