Watsonville: Memories That Linger : Volume 2 [1980]

£17.99

Product description

Published in 1980 by Valley Publishers.
Illustrated throughout with historical photographs and figures; includes examples of government documents and material pulled from government archives. With a preface written by the Managing Editor of The Register-Pajoronian, Ward Bushee, and a brief prologue giving context to the book. Appendix listing the Watsonville city officials of 1980, extensive references, and index.

Watsonville: Memories That Linger gives a close up look at the formative and fascinating events of Watsonville history. Important pioneers - Sebastian Rodriguez, Charles Ford, Lucius Sanborn, Thomas Albright - are profiled in detail. The stories of such familiar places as Chittenden Pass, Hecker Pass, El Pjaro Springs, Corralitos and Carrolton are brought to light. Betty Lewis' careful study encompasses baseball teams, move theatres, fruit packing houses and schools; her chapters cover the bicycling craze and 'Shady Ladies'.

Very Good condition. Noticeable wear to the jacket, faded and ripped in places. The price has been cut in two locations - the inside of the jacket and the top left hand corner of the back of the jacket. The corners of the jacket are dog eared and there is damage to the top of the jacket at the spine, most likely due to being pulled out of bookshelves. There is some light shelf wear to the bottom of the canvas boards, however they are in pretty ggod condition nonetheless. One small stain to the front end paper, and an inscription reading 'To Gwen. With love, Sara' also on the front end paper. All other pages are spotless, and the binding is tight.
