"Exploring Historic Hilo"
By Leslie Lang
122 pages, Paperback, $8.95
The latest in Watermark's "Small Town Series" covers the Big Island's little city by the sea, with images from the days when trains plied the waterfront and the Hilo Mercantile Co., opened in 1857 on Front Street, was the place to buy everything from wallpaper to animal feed. Included are excerpts from the writings of Hilo old-timers that help capture the spirit of the times.
