Description


The name Pasadena evokes images of a sunny paradise filled with the wafting scent of orange blossoms and roses. The world looks to Pasadena every January 1, when the world-famous Tournament of Roses carries on a century-long tradition and the Rose Bowl game reigns as college football's granddaddy of them all. Many of the city's other cultural and architectural icons also trace their roots to Pasadena's early days. From citrus groves to resort hotels, a bicycle highway and a commuter blimp, presidential visits, and summer snowstorms, the rich and varied history of early Pasadena can be seen in this volume's many unique photographs. Many of these images, taken from the archives at the Pasadena Museum of History, have never before been published. They reflect the colorful origins of a city that remains to this day a popular tourist destination, California cultural center, and a beloved home to thousands.
