Product Description:
Fresno was founded in 1872 in the middle of the vast, fertile San Joaquin Valley and quickly became the financial and social center of California. From the infinite amount of agricultural products to lumber, oil, water, and electrical power, the city thrived upon the multitude of natural resources that were abundantly available in the area. As the county seat, it was the political and cultural center of central California. Shown in this volume are postcards of the city in its heyday.

  • Clovis
Product Description:
In the late 1800s, Clovis M. Cole purchased large tracts of land in California’s San Joaquin Valley with the intent to farm wheat. Marcus Pollasky, a businessman from the East with a keen eye for a profit, proposed building a railroad that would bring more people and gains to the area. The two struck a deal. Cole sold key landholdings to Pollasky, and the town was given Cole’s first name. Businesses grew along Front Street, and families purchased nearby 20-acre parcels where they built homes and grew abundant crops. Living in Clovis became a way of life as dedication to family, friends, and community defined the area.

  • Tulare Images of America Arcadia Publishing
Product Description:
Today’s Tulare is a modern bedroom community, home to more than 60,000 people in the heart of California’s great San Joaquin Valley. Few, however, remember Tulare’s historic frontier and railroad days. Tulare was originally founded by the Southern Pacific Railroad as the terminal for its southern division. Interestingly enough, the railroad billed Tulare as the future county seat. Sadly, in 1891, Southern Pacific moved the roundhouse and machine shops to Bakersfield and the division headquarters to Fresno. In spite of this crippling event, Tulare has managed to reinvent itself from a rough-and-tumble frontier town to an agricultural bedroom community. This book showcases some of Tulare’s more well-known images from the 1880s up until today, capturing its development from railroad town to the modern era.

Product Description:
Roller Derby found a home in the San Francisco Bay Area following its Depression-era Chicago origins. An early television sensation, it faded to a modest existence in Los Angeles during the 1950s. Creator Leo Seltzer turned the game over to his son Jerry, who repositioned the traveling Bay Bombers from their home terrain of San Francisco to Fresno and everywhere in-between. He shined television camera lights on skaters who became the zenith in Roller Derby, including Charlie O’Connell, Annis Jensen, Joanie Weston, and more. Syndicated television games seen by millions yielded sellout crowds in every major arena in the country. However, economic and cultural changes closed Roller Derby in 1973. Passionate fans clung tenaciously to its memory. In the 21st century, the game made an astonishing return not only in Northern California but also worldwide.
