Anaheim is an American city quintessentially founded upon change. From its birth to the present, Anaheim has consistently built and reshaped its appearance, ideals, and industry. Through changing fortunes, Anaheim has continued to grow and prosper by overcoming adversity and maintaining the strong, independent culture of its citizens.

With a selection of fine historic images from his best-selling book, Historic Photos of Anaheim, Stephen J. Faessel provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the growth and development of Anaheim. Remembering Anaheim captures this journey through still photography selected from the finest archives. From Anaheim as the birthplace of the Los Angeles Vineyard Society to its becoming home of the world-famous Disneyland, Remembering Anaheim follows life, government, education, and events throughout the city's history. It captures unique and rare scenes through the lens of more than 100 historic photographs. Published in striking black-and-white, these images communicate historic events and everyday life of two centuries of people building a unique and prosperous city.
