Overview

The story of California began when a Portuguese captain sailing for Spain found a beautiful natural harbor as he plied his way up the Pacific coast. Little could he have imagined that dropping his anchor in what is now San Diego Bay would be the birth of the Golden State, with its rocky cliffs and rugged beaches in the north, and orange trees, warm ocean breezes, and boulevards lined with palm trees in the postcard-perfect south. With a selection of fine historic images from her best-selling book, Historic Photos of Old California, Nancy Hendrickson provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of Old California. This volume, Remembering Old California, is the state’s story.
