Overview

Riverside in Vintage Postcards (Postcard History Series) by Steve Lech


Riverside has been a vital center of agriculture and government throughout the growth of Southern California. Postcards sent from this city to those far away usually depict it as a resort, situated on the western edge of the Colorado Desert, where the historic Mission Inn has been a vacation destination for generations. Illustrating many facets of this world-renowned, garden-like gathering spot, these attractive images also showcase Riverside’s Main Street, public buildings, parks, broad avenues, the sharply rising Mt. Rubidoux on the edge of town, and the influence of the citrus industry.

Steve Lech has done a wonderful job in constructing this work of vintage postcards from Riverside, California. He has the eyes of a true historian. The postcards are put into seven chapters each depicting certain aspects of Old Riverside and its surrounding area. It is fascinating to see areas you know through postcards of the past. For all those who love local history or who travel through Riverside and Southern California, this book is well worth getting as a remembrance. ¿ Leslie Strang Akers
