History of Daphne Told Through Photographs

Local authors Harriet Brill Outlaw and Penny H. Taylor team up on new book on this city in Baldwin County

Feb. 23, 2012 - PRLog -- The newest addition to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America series is Daphne from local authors Harriet Brill Outlaw and Penny H. Taylor. The book boasts more than 200 vintage images and memories gone by.

Daphne, the Jubilee City, is home to people who came to partake of the rich resources of Mobile Bay’s eastern shore. They gathered to collect seafood miraculously washing ashore during the phenomenon of jubilee. They gathered under the spreading oaks to hold councils and along the bayfront to escape the perils of yellow fever across the bay in Mobile. They gathered for clean spring waters and rare pottery clay, to greet the bay boats, and to farm the rich soil. Daphne’s heritage is one of a gathering of peoples, and Daphne documents that heritage.

Harriet Brill Outlaw, coauthor of Images of America: Baldwin County, is an educator with a passion for local history. She has produced documentaries on local schools and communities and published articles on Baldwin County history and folklore.

Penny H.Taylor, a native Mobilian and Daphne resident, is a skilled amateur photographer and a professional graphic artist. She has practiced graphic design for many clients and industries over a 25-year period, and she is building her own graphic arts business, Taylored Graphix, LLC.
