Summary
  • "It's the capital and most populous city in Puerto Rico and the second-oldest European-established fort in the Americas. San Juan Bautista de Puerto Rico--San Juan--was established in 1508 and has been an important port ever since. See how this culturally rich city has changed, and how it has remained the same in San Juan Then and Now. View stunning then and now photographs of such landmarks as the seaside fortress Castillo del Morro, the mid-nineteenth century military barracks Cuartel del Ballaja, and Casa Blanca, the seaside home that was built for city founder Juan Ponce de Leon in 1521. Complete with an illuminating historical overview, the history of this vibrant seaside city comes to life in in this impressive pictorial of the old and the new."--
  • "Archival and modern photographs of scenes from around San Juan, Puerto Rico, shown side by side to show how the city has changed over the last century while preserving its heritage. Includes text in both English and Spanish"--
