Woody Guthrie is acknowledged and lauded the world over for inspiring the likes of Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Joe Strummer.

For the first time the city that Woody called home is brought to life in historical photographs, documents and previously unpublished lyrics. Like a scrapbook, it gathers all that helped make him the legend we celebrate today and the city in which it happened.
