Images of America: Albion and Noble Coun

Our New Website Is History

As part of the book release for Images of America: Albion and Noble County, we’ve decided to include some extras—bonus materials, especially for people who like history and/or local people. I mean for local people, not for people who like local people. This is going to be a separate website from, although each has a link to the other. This is because the regular website can be a little challenging to update, and the male half of this writing team is a notorious Luddite.

There were three things we wanted to bring you:

More photos: historical ones that wouldn’t fit or that weren’t quite good enough quality, and modern pictures of historic localities. There are places with historical significance that aren’t represented in the book, and we hope to fix that. Also, you might see photos here of events at historical locations.

More information about historical places mentioned in the book. It’s so photo heavy, and the only place to write was chapter openings and captions—and you all know how wordy Mark can be.

Additions and corrections pointed out by readers. For instance, we’ve already learned more about one photo in the book, information that didn’t come until after it went to press.

So we now have a website called, to avoid confusion, Images of America: Albion and Noble County. It can be found here:

We’ve already put up a few photos, with more to come. Word will go out via blog whenever there’s an update—let us know what you think.
