One interesting aspect of centennial books is that they can give you two different views of a town's history. A good example is this book that celebrates the centennial of Dickson City in 1975. The book contains a history of the town up until 1975, but the photos and advertisements provide a snapshot of what the town was like in 1975. Many more centennial books are available on-line in the Celebrating Our Towns: Lackawanna County Centennial Books and Community Histories collection.
