Dodge City is getting a fresh look at its historic past.
Author George Laughead Jr. has assembled a new book titled "Images of America: Dodge City," using photographs from the collection of the Ford County Historical Society.
The Dodge City Daily Globe reports (http://bit.ly/NNLyCQ ) that most of the photos in the book have never been published. Laughead says the pictures help portray life in the iconic town between roughly 1890 and 1910.
The book is available for pre-ordering on Amazon.com and is scheduled for release on Sept. 10.
It's being published by Arcadia Publishing, a company specializing in local American history from the late 19th century to the mid-20th century.
