KIRKUS REVIEW

This ""Pictorial Record"" carries back to the old Virginia of 1850 to 1900 and is drawn from the legacy of the photographs taken by George Cook and his son Huestis- known as the Cook Collection. And so, through 294 pictures, the Cooks will tour you through Virginia homes and plantations, its countryside and cities (Richmond, Norfolk, Jamestown, Williamsburg), and the fashions of the period, the diversions, the resorts, and, along with the fashions, the famous families and historical figures-and simple people- all fill in this changing landscape of a gone but not forgotten world. A nostalgia as well as a restoration value here- for a regional audience.
