Concord in the Days of Strawberries & Streetcars

By Renee Garrelick (1985)
242 pages, softcover

$5 Price - Inventory Reduction Sale Drastically reduced price!

From the back cover: "Concord in the Days of Strawberries and Streetcars is a wonderful window into Concord's past. The story of earlier twentieth-century life unfolds through the oral history memories of its longtime residents as they describe Concord's transition from a small country town. It has been a century that brought far greater changes to the lifestyle of the community than any preceding it. As this book is read, some will feel nostalgia for the way of life described, others will regret the passing of an era, and still others, for the first time, will come to know how it was."
