(B&W and color photographs) Per the introduction, this book is "more than just an updating of Pasadena history. Manny Pineda has given a great deal of attention to some special topics well worth developing as a part of the background to the present level of Pasadena's accomplishments. He has treated very fully the history of Pasadena's city departments -- Fire, Police, Water, Light and Power, and the Library. He has traced the growth of the privately owned utilities of the area. He has reviewed the development of the city school system, with particular attention to Pasadena City College. He has produced a thorough study of the remarkable growth of the California Institute of Technology. He has covered the activities of the private schools and the culturally-oriented organizations, as well as the development of various social and civic groups. And lastly he has added two special chapters: one a history of sports in Pasadena, the other a history of the Rose Bowl games." Includes publisher's original promotional card, laid in. [NOTE that the copyright is attributed to "Historical Publishing Company," whose seal also adorns the front cover; the title page, however, states James W.
