About meI'm interested in life in southern California* in the year 1939. It was a grand year in many ways: popular culture, industrial design, books, economic improvement from the depths of the Depression, isolation from what would become WWII and the beginnings of hot rodding to name a few topics.

I'm a model railroader who belongs to a club focusing on the '20s, '30s and into the '50s (see website link below).

*specifically, the area about halfway between Pasadena and San Bernardino along the Santa Fe Railway and Pacific Electric routes.

About my libraryThe books and music cover a wide variety of topics. The common factor is that the information they contain directly or indirectly concerns the location and time of my interest. Some titles include topics that are a little "off" such as possible vacation destinations.
