Early European personifications of America, meaning the Americas .

Early European personifications of America, meaning the Americas, typically come from sets of the Four Continents, all that were then known in Europe. No images survive, but the official festival book has text descriptions, although they had clearly not been explained properly to the author. In spite of the predominant conception of America personified as being a half-clad woman wearing feathers, holding a bow, and having a large reptile at her side and a disembodied head at her feet, not all images of America were made strictly in accordance with what was essentially Ripa’s template for the continental personifications, nor did the cultural elements or wildlife.

This book features a terrific collection of photographs describing the history and highlights of the Sunnybrook Ballroom, and will be of great interest particularly to those who grew up within sixty miles or so and kept hearing about the ballroom. It would be a much better book had it been possible to date more of the photos, though the author surely did his best. The printing of most photos is not very good, and there does not appear to have been any attempt to improve the contrast of the originals. That said, this is an inexpensive book.

I bought this book for my mother who grew up in Pottstown. Back in the 1940s it is where she and my father spent every weekend. She is was thrilled to get this book for Christmas and it brought back many memories thank you very much .

Great. I started with the pool & graduated to the ballroom.
After the war, went on, to Stan Kenton at New Year's Eve in 1947.& ate from there on until Mother's Day this year..
Relived the whole thing again! Thanks.

This book is an interesting look at a landmark and the people that made it all possable. The Big Bands that brought enjoyment to all that entered. The delightful memories it held, and still holds, for scores of townspeople and beyond.
The restoration of this fantastic place is welcome by all.

Read and enjoy! The photographs tell it all.
