Discover History of Eureka in New Book

Local author releases new book featuring collection of vintage photographs

 
PRLog - Jan. 28, 2013 - New from Arcadia Publishing’s Then & Now series is Eureka by local author Scott H. Brown. Vintage images are compared and contrasted with modern-day photographs for a side by side look at local history in Eureka.

Tucked away behind the "redwood curtain" on the northwestern coast of California lies the historic city of Eureka. The location of the city directly alongside Humboldt Bay combined with the abundance of redwood attracted miners, loggers, and fishermen, and the city grew and prospered quickly.

Using a comparison of historic images gathered from several historical archives matched with current photographs taken by the author, this book shows Eureka's transformation from a wild logging and fishing town into the modern city it has become today.

Comparing our present to our past is how we understand our history. Arcadia’s Then & Now series makes such local comparisons available. Books in this series offer a special view of American life by placing historical images side by side with contemporary photographs.

Highlights of Eureka include:
•   Many of the historical images used in the book came from special collections housed at the Humboldt State University Library
•   Several images in the book were taken in places that are not generally accessible to the public
•   The book not only features the remaining historical places in Eureka it also includes many of the lost landmarks that have long been forgotten
•   The book contains interior photos of the remains of the old Ingomar Theater and the restored Arkley Center for the performing arts as well as images taken from the top of the Carson Mansion

Available at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers, or through Arcadia Publishing at (888)-313-2665 or online.
