The 100 Books of the Century (French: Les cent livres du siècle) is a list of the one hundred best books of the 20th century, according to a poll conducted in the spring of 1999 by the French retailer Fnac and the Paris newspaper Le Monde

The 100 Books of the Century (French: Les cent livres du siècle) is a list of the one hundred best books of the 20th century, according to a poll conducted in the spring of 1999 by the French retailer Fnac and the Paris newspaper Le Monde. Starting from a preliminary list of 200 titles created by bookshops and journalists, 17,000 French voters responded to the question, "Which books have remained in your memory?" (Quels livres sont restés dans votre mémoire ?).

Toledo began the 20th century as it had ended the 19th―with a rapid expansion in industrialization, urbanization, and immigration. The titans of industry who shaped Toledo’s early history continued to expand their fortunes and were joined by others who took advantage of the city’s potential. A new industry emerged from the bicycle factories and wagon works of the 19th century―the automobile industry. It would dominate Toledo’s economy in the 20th century. In addition to Jeeps, scales, glass, spark plugs, and transmissions, Toledo was also known for its civic reforms, strong labor unions, and fine cultural institutions during the 20th century. While Toledo never became “The Future Great City of the World” that Jesup Scott envisioned or even the futuristic “Toledo Tomorrow” that Norman Bel Geddes imagined, by the end of the 20th century, it was a successful city with an interesting past and a hopeful future.

I spent my first 18 years in Toledo but didn't know much about its history. This is a good thumbnail intro. I don't know much about photo technology, but I found the photos fine and I expect most readers will, too.

A very nice book on my home town. Opening the pages I felt as though I could walk right through the streets and into the past. Beautifully illustrated and a must have for those missing Toledo, Ohio and the past.

Needs enhancement. All pictures faded and grainy. I dont believe life was all as dull and colorless as it was portrayed in this volumn.
