Along Forgotten River: Photographs of Buffalo Bayou and the Houston Ship Channel, 1997-2001, With Accounts of Early Travelers to Texas, 1767-1858

Texas State Historical Association..."For more than five years award-winning photographer Geoff Winningham explored and photographed Buffalo Bayou, the Houston Ship Channel, and the landscape he found along the way. He revisited sites of historic importance, such as Allen's Landing, where the city was founded in 1836, and the San Jacinto Battlefield, where Texas won its independence in the same year. In Along Forgotten River Winningham has sequenced eighty of his striking, large-format black-and-white photographs, following Buffalo Bayou from its source in the Katy Prairie, through the suburbs and into the inner city of Houston. From there, his stunning duotone photographs follow the bayou east to its confluence with the San Jacinto River, where it becomes the Houston Ship Channel, crosses Galveston Bay, and enters the Gulf of Mexico.Author: Geoff Winningham; Product Info. ISBN: 978-87611-190-1 Format: Limited Edition 9 X 12 in., 160 pp. 80 duotone photographs, maps.  This book can be purchased from the Texas State Historical Association.
