Meet the Author


Fifth-generation San Matean Gregory N. Zompolis presents a striking collection of vintage photographs that show San Mateo’s journey through the years. In these pages are rare images of the city’s early denizens—the common people as well as the land barons whose summer homes dominated the early landscape—going to school, shopping, eating, doing business, and enjoying life in the beautiful Surroundings by the bay.
