The neighboring towns of Winston and Salem combined their creative, cultural, and industrial forces in 1913, and the city of Winston-Salem was born. Building upon its rich Moravian heritage, the Piedmont North Carolina city was the founding home for corporations in the tobacco, textile, aviation, banking, and medical industries. Local photographer Franklin B. Jones Jr., born just one year after the founding of the Twin City, spent a lifetime recording the day-to-day events of his hometown. Photographing breaking news stories and human interest features for the Winston-Salem Journal and Twin City Sentinel newspapers, Jones captured on film the people and events that defined and shaped the city's history from the late 1930s to the early 1970s. Illustrated with Frank B. Jones Jr.'s photographs and highlighted with informative captions, this volume recalls names and places that set memories in motion and prompt stories about an earlier time in the Twin City.
