Arcadia's lovely 'Images of America' series is outstanding; especially for those interested in California history who tire of the books which focus on larger areas rather than smaller neighborhoods. These titles are powerful presentations, gathered from a blend of private photo collections and local archives projects: while the focus is on the local images, plenty of history is included. Peter Linenthal, Abigail Johnston and the Potrero Hill Archives Project's SAN FRANCISCO'S POTRERO HILL (0738529370) charts a neighborhood history beginning with Gold-rush squatters, when Potrero Hill became the first industrial zone in San Francisco San Francisco (săn frănsĭs`kō), city (1990 pop. 723,959), coextensive with San Francisco co., W Calif., on the tip of a peninsula between the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay, which are connected by the strait known as the Golden complete with butcheries and smelting plants. Its colorful immigrant history appears in photos gathered by Peter Linenthaal, who directs the Potrero Hill archives Project blending oral histories, photos, and ephemera e·phem·er·a

Noun 1. . SAN FRANCISCO'S JAPANTOWN (073853059X) comes from the holdings of the Japantown Task Force Inc. and surveys the culture and rise of a community which has long been a part of the city's history, since 1869. A new retrospective pairs vintage photos from the archives of several libraries and historical holdings with private sources and memories of Japantown residents. Jack Tillmany's THEATRES OF SAN FRANCISCO (0738530204) provides a colorful history of the little theatres which once peppered neighborhoods throughout the city. Only a handful remain, making THEATRES OF SAN FRANCISCO an essential tribute, in photos and facts, by the former owner of the Gateway Cinema in San Francisco. Tillmany's personal archive was built during his 30-year career in cinema management, so he's in the perfect position to chart its rise and fall in photo and word.

Located approximately 100 miles (160 km) north of San Francisco, the name "Anderson Valley" applies broadly to several rural, unincorporated communities in or near the alluvial historical Society's ANDERSON VALLEY (0838530174), a survey of a region which began as a road intersection and evolved into a town and then a valley replete with shops, ranches, museums and even, today, wineries. The Anderson Valley Historical Society runs a museum and has chosen photos from its archives and local private collections alike to recreate the region's heyday and rise.
