In the spring of 1913, the city of San Marino consolidated, incompletely to abstain from being assumed control by a neighboring town with higher property charges. In 1914, after one year, what was going on? How was the new little city functioning? What was going ahead in the 48 Joined States? KEN VERONDA, Dean of Southwestern Institute, will engage every last one with a verifiable address on this time at Crowell Open Library Monday, May nineteenth at 7:00 p.m. Ken will confer the issues and points of view of that day incorporating the issues with the school building, Alhambra’s ridiculous charges for their administrations here, and the pervasions of rats all through the orange forests and homesteads. Water had begun streaming into the discharge San Fernando Valley and the district was nearing a half-million individuals. Pasadena’s lanes were congested with engine autos, and their smelly fumes was fouling San Marino’s air. Some fine new homes were being built on the fairway along the city’s northern outskirt, however many dreaded they will just add to the swarmed valley. There were reports of an expanding risk of war with Mexico and the child of the town’s board president was get ready to battle. European countries were quarreling once more, yet luckily the U.S. was a long way from being included.
Ken Veronda holds degrees in history from Stanford College. He is a deep rooted individual from the group and is a past president of Rotary Club of San Marino and the San Marino City Club. He is a looked for after speaker on the historical backdrop of the San Gabriel Valley.
Come hear what’s occurred since San Marino City was composed in 1913, how the homesteads and towns of our San Gabriel Valley were doing, and how the general population were reacting to the social and political changes whirling around. This program is free and open to general society.
