Book puts Pulaski in spotlight

History buffs and Pulaski County residents will have a chance to help support the Raymond F. Ratcliffe Memorial Museum when a book on the photographic history of Pulaski goes on sale Monday, Sept. 22.
All profits from the book, published by Arcadia Publishing and compiled by the Town of Pulaski’s Economic Development Director John White, will support the museum’s preservation efforts.
Earlier this week, the Pulaski Town Council voted to move forward with a new building for the museum, which presently occupies the train depot at the corner of Washington Avenue and Dora Highway.
The book is part of the “Images of America” series of books published by Arcadia.
Some of the other area localities that have been featured in the “Images” series are Blacksburg, Christiansburg, Wythe County, Roanoke and Radford.
“Images of America: Pulaski” includes more than 200 historic photographs and supporting narratives.
The photographs were collected over several months from area residents.

Many are from the collection of Rudolph and Theda Farmer, who ran a photography studio in the town for many years.
The book costs $19.95 per copy.
It will be available at area bookstores, independent retailers, online retailers and through Arcadia Publishing at (888) 313-2665 or www.arcadiapublishing.com.
White will take part in a book-signing Saturday, Sept. 27, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Coffee Buy The Book at 10 West Main St. in Pulaski.
