The Southern California city of Oxnard has its roots in agriculture. From the original dry-farming crops to labor-intensive sugar beets and most recently strawberries, each crop brought a new group of people to Ventura County’s largest city, located 60 miles north of Los Angeles. Many chapters of Oxnard’s enduring history have been captured on postcards and distributed to family and friends around the world. Arcadia Publishing’s Postcard History series allows these images to come home and tell the story once again.
Author Bio: Jeffrey Wayne Maulhardt’s family has been a part of each generation of the growth in Oxnard, and his deep connections to the area helped in his accumulation of these images, used here to document the city’s history beyond his two previous titles in the Images of America series: Oxnard: 1867–1940 and Oxnard: 1941–2004.
