  • More About This Book
Since 1940, Pasadena has experienced seismic shifts, both literally and figuratively. The postwar suburban explosion touched the city, with new homes, new jobs, and new worldviews shaping the coming of age of a municipality known for its hospitality, science, culture, and good weather. This companion volume to Arcadia Publishing's Early Pasadena continues the city's remarkable story as it draws on seldom-seen photographs from the Pasadena Museum of History, along with images from private collections, to trace the story of the past 70 years. The result is a compendium that chronicles the struggles and triumphs of this beloved city. Longtime residents, new arrivals, first-time visitors, and anyone lucky enough to have experienced the "Crown City" firsthand will find something of interest in this engaging illustrated history.
