Painting California: “…A Very Valuable Thing…”

Limited Use, Discard Thereafter: Finding Pasadena’s Past in Old Receipts

Rarely do I save grocery receipts. As soon as possible, I shred and recycle those slick strips of white thermal paper that some magical tabulating machine generated with a click and a whir and a generic, “ Thank you. Please visit our website at….” These seemingly bland records of purchase are nonetheless bits of true […]

Come Home Instantly! Part 3

In Part 2 of “Come Home Instantly!,” Eva and Adalbert Fenyes, our traveling Pasadenans, sailed home from Europe just days before a succession of political and military threats and ultimatums kindled the world’s Great War. Fortunately for the Fenyeses, they arrived safely in New York on July 29, 1914, the day after Austria-Hungary declared war on […]
