On Dec. 20, he will be at the Pulaski Historical Society, 3428 Maple St., from 2 to 4 p.m.

The book covers the history of the town of Richland in postcard and photographic images from the late 1800s to the 1930s.

There are chapters on the homes, churches, schools and businesses in Pulaski, Richland, Port Ontario, Selkirk and Fernwood.

Other chapters feature the Salmon River and the railroads.

Petry is originally from Long Island, NY, but now lives in Syracuse.

His grandmother and uncle lived in Pulaski in the 1960s.

As a boy, he and his family would visit in the summers, staying at Clark’s Cottages, by the Selkirk Lighthouse.

Petry now volunteers with the Pulaski Historical Society, which works to preserve the past for the future.

A portion of the sales of the book will go to support the mission of the historical society.
