"Originally printed as a 1917 Chamber of Commerce book, this version was kept as close to original as possible. Each picture and page was painstakingly captured, cleaned, and put together one page at a time.
The 1917 book was acquired by Toad Hall Books and Records. Once in their hands, they decided not to sell it but somehow share it with the world. So the journey started.
This project couldn't have been possible without the permission of the Rockford Chamber of Commerce and the help of Prographics of Rockford, Illinois."
