YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Sept. 27, 2016 - PRLog -- Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for Campbell

Local Author, Joseph Pavlansky, will be available to sign copies of book

Shaped from the rough farmlands and hills of northeast Ohio and forged from the blood, sweat, and tears of the steel mill workers, the city of Campbell (formerly Coitsville Township and later East Youngstown) had a humble start. With the turn of the 20th century, it was thrust into an economic growth that rivaled the biggest cities in the United States.

Measuring only 3.74 square miles, some said Campbell brought in enough revenue that the streets could be lined with gold. The Youngstown Sheet & Tube Company Campbell Works formed in 1900 and brought with it the need for more workers. As immigrants from the surrounding areas came for employment, their families joined them from Europe. Within a few years, Campbell became a culturally diverse city that fed on the revenue from the steel mill and its socioeconomic by-products.

Highlights of Campbell include:

·         A portion of the profits from the sale of the book is being donated to Campbell non-profit organizations.

·         A majority of the images in the book have been donated from private collections of local residents and from the Campbell Historical Society.

·         Some of the photos of Campbell businesses, churches, classes, schools and events have not been seen in decades.
