'Memory Lane' books available

Are you ready to take a walk down “Memory Lane”?

The history books “Memory Lane: A Pictorial History of Dalton and Whitfield County, Georgia” produced by The Daily Citizen are now available for pickup at the newspaper’s office at 308 S. Thornton Ave.

Those who pre-ordered can pick up their copy or copies from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. If you didn’t pre-order a book, they are available for $24 each. Supplies are limited. For those who paid to have their books mailed, they were sent out Tuesday.

The 84-page book contains scores of photos from Dalton and Whitfield County’s past, all of which were submitted by area residents. There are photos of downtown Dalton, historic buildings and plenty of memories of days gone by — from the Civil War era up to the 1980s.

“We are extremely pleased to offer the community a book containing so much of Dalton’s heritage,” said William Bronson, publisher of The Daily Citizen. “With the holidays upon us, we believe ‘Memory Lane’ makes an excellent gift for family and friends.”

There was an overwhelming response from the community with hundreds of photographs submitted. Since there were so many photographs contributed to the project, The Daily Citizen unfortunately was not able to use all of them. Thank you to everyone who submitted photographs.
