Wow - good timing. Thanks for mention Svanavicks wonderful book.

I just purchased the new, beautiful Burlingame Centennial book put out by the Historical Society!! What a great addtion and follow -up to City of Trees.

I was so excited to purchase my copy from the Library that I stopped at their computers to type this. Because of theis thread, the first thing I checked was the theatres, and another wow. The Garden, the Fox, Peninsula, and all with fantastic photos. Just go to the index and you'll find so much about this subject. This new book has this neat blueprint and a photo of one of the water fountain gargoyles I grew up with (aging my self here)

I feel so lucky to have both beautiful books. I understand City of Trees is out of print, and this new book is selling fast.


Your enthusiasm is well-placed, Genevieve. The new book might be the most significant accomplishment in the city since the train station was "saved" in the '70s. The beauty of the story is that the book's proceeds will go towards taking the train station to the next level as a historical museum. What more could a B'gamer ask for????


looks like a great spot for the teen center
