[Sonoma County. 1907]. Item #480
A scarce illustrated booklet that commemorates the 1907 meeting of the Veterans Association of Northern California and their Ladies' Auxiliary at Camp Meeker, in the northern California redwoods. The pamphlet doubles as promotional brochure for the vacation subdivision created by lumber baron M.C. Meeker, who sold plots of the land once he had stripped it of its trees. The front wrapper shows an imaginary charge of California soldiers during the Civil War, and the charge of the veterans to arrive at the encampment. Beneath Meeker advertises lots available from fifteen dollars and cottages from sixty-five dollars. The booklet contains many photographic reproductions of architectural and geographical features of the camp and its surroundings, and some images of the Civil War veterans OCLC locates three copies, at the Marin County Free Library; the Sonoma County Library; and the University of California Davis.
