This is a book that takes the reader to destinations in Northern California that most people seldom visit or are even aware of. Venturing into these abandoned worlds, Manol Z. Manolov explores the forgotten historical legacy of the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. This region, now known for its technology, was once a place of naval bases, military installations, and one of the oldest shipyards in the state of California. Through original photographs and words, the author paints a picture of a disappearing world that not only conveys the stories of local life, the way it used to be, but also raises important questions about the attitudes and mentalities that led to the disappearance of places once so vital to the livelihood of the area. A telling account of the transition from Cold War enterprise to Silicon Valley exuberance, this book presents another, much lesser-known side of the place most now regard as the center of high-tech innovation.
