Take a historical journey to Pasadena, California, through rare views of vintage postcards spanning the early 1900s through the 1960s. See how this city in the suburbs of Los Angeles offered Californians entertainment, beautiful sights, and a place to call home, where exquisite architecture has withheld the test of time. Visit Marengo Avenue's overhanging pepper trees, and East Colorado Street, where the annual Tournament of Roses takes place every New Years Day. Become immersed in Pasadena's lovely landscaping that lasts all year, including lush orange groves and floral gardens.
