They made their home in Woodside, California.

Ithaca then & now, by Merrill Hesch and Richard Pieper ; revised and updated by Harry Littell. Historic views from the collection of the DeWitt Historical Society of Tompkins County re-photographed today. Hesch, Merrill, 1955- author. Publication Information.

Searching the vast photographic archives of the DeWitt Historical Society of Tompkins County, the authors of Ithaca Then and Now have chosen images that show an Ithaca, New York that once was. These views depict a city of carriages and trolleys, of parades and celebrations, and of hotels, schools, theaters, and churches that no longer exist. Standing in the footsteps of the turn-of-the-century photographers, the authors show us these same views as they appear today. Some of the scenes haven't changed all that much; others are astonishingly different.

Filled with original research and colorful, informative descriptions of the photographs, Ithaca Then & Now is of special interest to anyone concerned with the American architectural heritage. It is a vivid documentary of a changing city.

I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in the history of the Ithaca area. You can catch glimpses of Ithaca's glamorous movie history or heavy industrial past from almost any sidewalk in town. In my time at Cornell I was fascinated by what I saw, but so much has changed that I could not put all of the pieces together. This book solves that problem. On facing pages, the author contrasts both the modern view and a historic view from the same location, with comments about the origin and fate of structures.
For those of us who want to learn more about Ithaca's origins and history, this book is a must have. If a few copies were put in the Straight Hall browsing library, we would have a lot more Cornell students who appreciate Ithaca.

I greatly enjoied this book both for its useful insight into the city of Ithaca and community and its historical pictures with modern day representations. As a former student of Ithaca College, I recomend this book for anyone interested in discovering a hidden history of Ithaca that has been lost to the general public. Filled with historical facts and stories, the book does a wonderful job in repectfully paying omage to a city rich with historical status. A entertaining and informative book all around, a must for any history lover.
