About this title

Synopsis:

South Pasadena is a small city among giants, sandwiched between the great metropolis of Los Angeles and its nationally famous namesake neighbor, Pasadena. Described as a modernday Mayberry and a Norman Rockwell painting come to life, South Pasadena thoroughly represents the very idea of “Main Street America.” The city’s 40year fight against the I710 Freeway extension is legendary in suburban efforts to maintain cultural identity. “South Pas,” as residents know it, was named five times on the National Historic Register’s top10 list of “Most Endangered Places.” The city’s resistance to outside forces threatening to erode the rich heritage captured in these evocative images has made this “little guy” municipality a giant in the historicpreservation battle.

About the Author:

Author Rick Thomas is the former museum curator and vicechair of education for the South Pasadena Preservation Foundation. He served on the South Pasadena Natural Resources Commission, helping to maintain a strict policy protecting the city’s great oldgrowth trees. Using touchstone photographs from his own collection―one of the San Gabriel Valley’s largest accumulations of historical images and artifacts―as well as national, state, and local historical archives, Thomas provides a window to his city’s past and an understanding of why its preservation is so important.
