Roseland-Pullman The Golden Years Vol. 1 and Vol. 2

In the early 1980s, a group of five area individuals decided to publish a book of images of Roseland and Pullman spanning from the late 19th to the mid-20th century. The members of this committee were Mario Avignone, Bette Kooistra, Ron Nietupski, Paul Petraitis and Bill Stachmus. More than 150 contributors provided photographs of family, neighbors, events, streetscapes, school photos, sports images, area businesses, etc. In addition to the hundreds of images in each book, Volume 1 contains a history of Roseland by Paul Petraitis and a history of Pullman by Mario Avignone.
