Center for Sacramento History is a treat

If you’re a Sacramento enthusiast, I hope you are following/liking/visiting the Center for Sacramento History.

For example, here’s a photo they shared on Facebook earlier this month showing snow in downtown Sacramento from 1942 from the Eugene Hepting Collection (1985/024/1731).

Love it.

They are now working on the Tower Records Project, an effort to “preserve the official archives of the ‘largest music store in the known universe.'”

Very cool. What a great series of videos, too. Takes you back.

  1. The calendar with the red Honda scooter…that’s the same red Honda scooter I used to drive down South Land Park Drive to the Tower on Broadway. There was a storage “trunk” on the front of the scooter that opened and it was just big enough to hold LP’s.
    Never again will any of us see anything like Tower was.
