This 2019 edition offers a popular approach for illustrating a locality’s historic preservation efforts: a historic photograph alongside a contemporary image of the same property. The calendar features rehabilitated buildings that are still in use for their original purposes or as new businesses or public institutions. The large historic photographs have not previously been published in an OTM calendar or in our Images of America title, Winslow. Text for these photographs was adapted from OTM publications and exhibits, National Register of Historic Places nominations, and Winslow Mail articles by Janice Henling and others.

For the small contemporary images, much of the information was provided by people who currently work in – and lovingly maintain – these historic structures. The 2019 edition includes a bonus insert: A self-guided driving tour of the featured properties as they appear in the calendar: driving east on 2nd Street, then west on 3rd Street, an d then to a few other locations elsewhere in town. Further, the museum has compiled a list of additional properties that we hope to include in another Then and Now edition. If you have a historic photograph of any of them that we have never published, we would love to include it and acknowledge your loan.
OTM Director Ann-Mary Lutzick developed this calendar, and International Minute Press of Flagstaff did the graphic design and printing. Most photographs are from the OTM Collections, with many thanks to Renee James at Arizona State University Library for her help with the Herb and Dorothy McLaughlin Collection. Lutzick also thanks Melanie Tobin of the Wells Fargo Community Mural Program, Sandra Harvey of Dominique’s On the Corner, Marshall Losey with the Winslow Senior Center, Frank Guzman with Bank of the West, Corey Mincevich and Jason Davis with the USPS-Winslow, Melissa Robertson Olson of Stuart Eye Center, Arianna Huerta with Washington Elementary School, Sondra Purcell of the Haven/Sanctuary, Terry Nagel with Four Corners Realty, and Kim Gould, Curtis Hardy, and Dan Lutzick for their invaluable feedback.
