SOUTH PASADENA: A Centennial History, 1888-1988

South Pasadena: South Pasadena Public Library, 1987. First Edition. Hardcover. This is number 73 of a special edition of 150 signed by the author, Jane Apostol, the designer, Ward Ritchie, and the author of the foreword, Lawrence Clark Powell. Only five cities in Los Angeles County are older than South Pasadena, and few are smaller. Despite its size, and the looming presence of metropolitan neighbors, South Pasadena retains much of the small-town atmosphere and sense of community its residents enjoyed a century ago. This book tells the story of South Pasadena from mission trails to freeways, from the first adobe to the new civic center. It also traces the history of the city's public schools, the library, and the churches; and it describes the many cultural heritage landmarks. Quarto: 311 p. with specially drawn maps and 175 historic photographs. Original black cloth binding, with decorative gilt stamping. A fine copy in a near fine dust jacket with some very light edgewear. Housed in the publisher's slipcase. Fine / Near Fine. Item #74292
ISBN: 0961729309
