Carl P Baggese

Carl P. Baggese, author of Images of America: Modesto, offers postcard views of the city from the early 1900s to the present. With the help of Denzil Walker and the McHenry Museum, this historical look at Modesto helps explain why this agriculturally rich locale has grown into a metropolitan area. The postcard images in this collection shed new light on the importance of irrigation, railroads, infrastructure, and commerce to the Northern California city's growth.
