This visual celebration of Wisconsin's sesquicentennial pairs 95 new photos by some of the state's finest documentary photographers and photojournalists. Nicolette Bromberg, curator of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin's Visual Materials Archive, selected dozens of the most interesting photographs in the collections of the Society and then commissioned photographers to capture on film the same locations or activities.
Whether portraying Main Streets, factory work, prize cows, or a busy lumber camp transformed back into quiet woodland, these photographs confirm that Wisconsin is a place of both continuity and change.
"Extraordinary, inventive, sometimes eerie, often profound juxtapositions of past and present." óJames P. Leary, author of "Wisconsin Folklore"
