First published in 1962, this wonderful collection is still around for a reason.
Walker A. Thompson's weekly feature called "Santa Barbara Yesterdays" first appeared in the Santa Barbara News Press in 1959. This collection brings together a series of articles written by Thompson about Santa Barbara's historic past. He writes on everything from "The Disastrous Flood of 1914" to the "Murder Mystery that Haunts Ortega Hill." These glimpses into the past were written over 50 years ago are still just as witty and entertaining today.
