For centuries, “California, here I come!" has been a popular rallying cry for fortune seekers setting course for the Golden State. This collection from the California State Library brings together a dozen travel brochures from 1870 to 1940 that document this most alluring state. Each resource is presented as a Flash flipbook that uses fun page turning effects, an engaging element that readers of all ages will enjoy. First-time visitors might wish to start with Los Angeles To-Day, which was originally published in 1924 to promote all aspects of the Southland. Another remarkable item is the 40-page pamphlet, The Jewel City: San Francisco, 1915 that offers an intimate look at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition. It's a wonderful collection of primary sources that might inspire a trip or two way out West.
