Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Following the great fire of 1912 through the "Daddy Train" era, Seaside grew as a holiday and summer resort. The opening of the Oregon Coast Highway from Astoria to California in the late 1920s and of Wolf Creek Highway (Sunset Highway) in the late 1930s made Seaside accessible from Portland by automobile. Reconstruction of the boardwalk, the era of the big bands, saltwater swimming pools, and lumber riots kept Seaside in the news. Seaside survived the crash of the stock market, and World War II brought about an era of reconstruction along with the Miss Oregon pageant. Seaside: 1920-1950 documents the city's growth and the people and businesses that helped it grow.

Susan Glen first came to the Seaside area in 1976 and discovered she had relatives who had lived there in the late 1800s. She is a member of the Seaside Historical Society and the New England Historical and Genealogical Society and is the recipient of the Public Service Commendation from the U.S. Coast Guard and the Alex Haley Award for Excellence in Internal Information. This is her second book in the Images of America series.

The Images of America series celebrates the history of neighborhoods, towns, and cities across the country. Using archival photographs, each title presents the distinctive stories from the past that shape the character of the community today. Arcadia is proud to play a part in the preservation of local heritage, making history available to all.
