By now you know that Santa Ana in Vintage
Postcards (shown above) has arrived!
What's next? Well, our "web-guy," Guy Ball is co-authoring with
local boy & super-historian Rob Richardson a new book with over 200 vintage photos from the early
1900s to about 1960. If all goes to plan, this book will be available at
book stores by the fall of 2004. The book will again by published by those nice
folks at Arcadia and is tentatively titled Images of America: Santa Ana,
Below is a sample of the pictures that may be used in the final book. Most of
these initial images were obtained from the wonderful resources available at the
Ana Public Library's History Room. (The numbers next to the photo subject
are the History Room's reference numbers.) If you are interested in Santa Ana
history, this should be your first stop. And now, thanks to the Santa Ana
City Council, they have expanded public hours.
If you'd like to contact us regarding this project (or if you can help provide
information about the picture - particularly any people or companies shown), please email
Guy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
