Marin County has long been known for its beautiful woodlands, seashores, and hills, but its towns, people, and architecture tell an equally compelling story. The largest of the Bay Area's nine counties, Marin has an amazingly varied makeup in both its populace and its natural setting. From the sparse, rocky seascapes and sandy beaches along the Point Reyes Peninsula, Bolinas, and Stinson Beach, to the suburban tracts of San Rafael, Corte Madera, and Novato, this county runs the gamut of California lifestyles and landscapes.

Tiburon-based historian (and two-time mayor of that city) Branwell Fanning presents here images of Marin County's journey through time, drawing from his private collection as well as from the archives of the Marin History Museum. Including early views of Marin's settlers, lumber operations, shipbuilding enterprises, and agriculture, this volume of photographs encapsulate the knowledge of a seasoned historian who has also authored Arcadia's Images of America: The Tiburon Peninsula and coauthored Angel Island to date. This unique collection provides a fresh look at an old county, which has changed dramatically since the early Spanish explorers first sailed into Richardson Bay.
