Before the Jamestown colonists reached their final shore, they arrived at a place they named Cape Henry, and beyond that lay an inlet that would one day shelter the towns of Hampton Roads: Chesapeake, Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, and Virginia Beach. With a selection of fine historic images from their best-selling book Historic Photos of Greater Hampton Roads, Emily J. and John S. Salmon provide a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of the region. The images collected in Remembering Greater Hampton Roads offer a remarkable glimpse into the history of these unique communities. Published in vivid black-and-white, these images communicate the historic events and everyday life of two centuries of Americans and two centuries of a fascinating corner of America. Remembering Greater Hampton Roads is sure to captivate anyone curious about the region’s past, from the student of history to the local history buff.
