Lost Rayne (Paperback) (Tony Olinger)
about this item
Rayne has always had the distinction of being a very progressive city. Once a building was worn or considered no longer modern, it was torn down, making way for a new structure to be raised in its place. Images of America: Lost Rayne has taken on the monumental task of preserving images of buildings, whether businesses or residences, that will allow future generations to see Rayne as it has changed during its 132-year history. Readers can almost smell bread baking at Privat's Bakery while sipping French drip coffee nearby at Paco's. Just around the corner, blocks of ice can be heard falling down their chutes at Jacque Weil's, along with the unmistakable sounds of the Lamson tubes at Mervine Kahn's. These landmarks may be long gone, but the memories will be forever etched in our minds.
