Description:

More than 200 vintage color postcards provide a unique perspective on the storied past of Fresno County. Postcards dating from as early as 1875 through the 1960s, many of which have never before been publicly available, are paired with brief passages that deftly position each card within its historical context. Many famous Fresno edifices which have long disappeared are revived again, including the El Rancho motel, the Carnegie Library, and the Pine Lake Lodge. Educational and inspiring, this exceptional compilation is a treasure trove for the regional history buff.
