A few years ago, a box of photos came across my desk. Among the contents was film negative, undeveloped film, and printed photos. Some had information connected with them, while others lacked any details.

From that first box, a massive collection eventually grew, containing thousands of images. And with those photos collected, the restoration process has began.

Out of those images, I produced my first book, titled Restoring the Past. The purpose of the book is to examine our local history of Bismarck/Mandan, through the use of photos. Each photo, or set of photos, contains a bit of history that digs at the past that is being depicted, with the hopes that some light can be shed on our history.

The information in the book has been extensively researched and will hopefully add to the knowledge of Bismarck/Mandan.

The book is broken up into sections that range from a look at local businesses and landmarks, the railroad, Crying Hill, and the two Fort Lincolns.

Each book is 8x10 inches, and all those who pre-order will get an extra gift as a way to say thank you. Price is $24.99.

Release date: August 2017

A few years ago, a box of photos came across my desk. Among the contents was film negative, undeveloped film, and printed photos. Some had information connected with them, while others lacked any details.

From that first box, a massive collection eventually grew, containing thousands of images. And with those photos collected, the restoration process has began.

Out of those images, I produced my first book, titled Restoring the Past. In this book, which is a companion volume, a bit of the behind the scenes work is displayed, along with some of the work that didn't get into the Restoring the Past book.

This book also features a few special sections, including a now and then feature, which takes a historic photo, and captures the same scene today, to display the differences, as well as a section on colorized photos, and a section on the actual restoration process.

This is a limited edition book, with only 25 printed, 10 of which will be set aside for sponsors, contest winners, and institutions. The goal of the book is to give another means in supporting this project.

Each book is 8x10 inches, and all those who pre-order will get an extra gift as a way to say thank you. Price is $50, and only 25 will be printed.
