Each week, The Gazette is proud to present Time Machine in the Sunday paper, taking a look back at some of the most notable people, places and events in Eastern Iowa’s history.
Recent installments explored:
Now, The Gazette is packaging 50 of our favorite Time Machine stories into a wonderful coffee table book, “Ties to Our Past.” The book will be a great gift for family and friends (or a wonderful gift for yourself) to look back at people and places that have shaped Eastern Iowa over the decades.

Since this is a Christmas gift I have not actually read the book from cover to cover yet. But, just from skimming through it though, it looks like it is full of interesting articles and great coverage of historical events. The book is hardbound and is of great quality. I have purchased most of the Cedar Rapids history books in the past and they have all been wonderful and thoroughly enjoyed by the whole family! Keep them coming Cedar Rapids Gazette!

My husband started reading this first, so this from what he has expressed. He has found many of the articles interesting . I was wishing more information might have been included about various buildings in town.

I could hardly put it down after I received it in the mail. Very well done. I would recommend it to anyone interested in the history of CR.
