1983 - Armed robber taken out at Alpha Beta supermarket on Lyons [story]


thenandnow2014[Arcadia Publishing] – Displaying more than 150 images of the Santa Clarita Valley’s past and present is the next addition to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Then & Now series, The Santa Clarita Valley. This new pictorial history is by local authors Dr. Alan Pollack, Kim Stephens and E.J. Stephens and is set to release on May 5, 2014. It explores the history of the California area and demonstrates how the past has impacted its modern identity.

The authors of The Santa Clarita Valley state that “Santa Clarita is a city where the Old West meets the new Hollywood.” As a “back lot” for Hollywood since the early days of movie making, images throughout the book depict the important role that the area played in film history. Images of the past highlight the progression of the community and the legendary people that played a key part in its growth.

Authors Alan Pollack, Kim Stephens and E.J. Stephens with their previous Arcadia book, “Legendary Locals of the Santa Clarita Valley.”

The book then shifts from the “Old West” to the “New West” and chronicles the area’s modern history. The book shares how the city of Santa Clarita was born in 1987 as the nation’s first new city with a population greater than 100,000. Colorful images depict how the valley has transitioned from agriculture to a broad spectrum of industries, all while maintaining its role as a location for film and television production. The Santa Clarita Valley offers a fascinating history that stretches back to the rugged Wild West era and preserves the history for generations to come.

Available at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers, or through Arcadia Publishing at (888)-313-2665 or online.
