CITY DIRECTORY, JACKSON, AMADOR COUNTY, CALIFORNIA 1949.
Edition: First printing.
Jackson, California: M-F Sales, 1949. First edition - A small booklet listing in alphabetical order all of the heads of households and businesses in Jackson, California in 1949. Inside the front cover is the information that the data in this directory was taken from the official map of the streets and numbers recently adopted by the City of Jackson. While Jackson is the county seat of Amador and the largest city in the region, it was still very much a small town then (and now). In 1949 all of the gold mines had been shut down, and the tourism boom had not yet begun. However, looking just at the last page it is interesting to see the variety of names from the English Winterbottom to the Basque Ybarra, the Chinese Yow and Yep and the Italian Zuccone. 28 pp in stiff tan stapled wrappers. Includes a double page street map, a list of local organizations with meeting places and dates, the US mail arrival and departure schedule and the location of all the fire alarm boxes. Advertisements of local businesses.
Condition: Fine condition.
