GUEST,Beachcomber BS: Who knows what Sacramento was like back (27) RE: BS: Who knows what Sacramento was like back 18 Mar 13


Bonnie, I have an old, very old, Souvenir Booklet (1923) on the famous Central Pacific Railroad. "FROM THE GOLDEN GATE TO THE GREAT SALT LAKE" is it's name. My Dad must have bought it just before he left California heading for New York C.1927. He never went back to the west but he kept it ever afterwards and used to take it out to "illustrate" his stories of those days for us kids in Ireland. There was another one also called "WONDERFUL CALIFORNIA" and the photos within these books just "zonked" my imagination back then but sadly I have never been further west than the "Big Apple".
Pity that I am not able to show those books to you, but my techno skill is deficient.
