Discover the History of Fresno in New Book

Local authors release new book featuring stunning collection of vintage photographs

 
PRLog - Dec. 18, 2012 - MT. PLEASANT, S.C. -- New to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Postcard History Series is Fresno by local authors John Reynolds and Michael J. Semas. This pictorial history boasts more than 200 vintage images and provides readers with a unique opportunity to reconnect with the history that shaped their community.

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.

Highlights of Fresno include:
•   Fresno on the Go
•   The Heart of Downtown
•   City and County Buildings
•   Fresno Businesses
•   Churches and Social Organizations
•   Schools
•   Agriculture
