    The Arcadia Images of America formula worked well.

    This is a quality book. The author was thoroughly familiar with Tiburon's past and present plus, he had access to photographs going back to the mid-1800's. More than 200 historic photos were elaborated in a relaxed, conversational writing style that belied the great care that must have gone into this project. The subject matter encompassed the 'Tiburon community', including: 1. a 4-mile long peninsula in San Francisco Bay: the Tiburon Peninsula, 2. two adjacent islands connected by causeways: Belvedere and Angel Island, and 3. a mini-peninsula: Strawberry. The total population is roughly 15,000, with about half residing within the town of Tiburon. The peninsula's history is fascinating. In 1837, a Mexican ally, John Reed, was granted title to the whole area and he and his son built dairy ranches. But overtime, the area's economy gravitated towards the building of train locomotives and ferries. In the decades since WWII, developers have gradually transformed Tiburon into an affluent residential community--although some of its original buildings remain. When looking at the old pictures of the land, buildings, and inhabitants, one senses that the area had character. Fortunately, while Mr. Fanning worked for forty years as a travel agent/writer, realtor, and small town politician, he culled and refined anecdotes related to Tiburon. His comments, and the photos, supplement each other well, so that a place, a time, and its people have been remarkably preserved.
