Shades and stories of Monterey( Visual )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary film draws from interviews that capture the memories, dreams and legacies of Monterey residents, eyewitnesses to the historically pivotal mid-20th century when Monterey underwent a fundamental transformation from a bustling small town centered around a world-famous fishing industry to a city revitalized by tourism. They speak about the physical and social aspects of that dramatic change, and the impact it had on their personal lives. Since 1998, the Monterey Public Library has been collecting photos of day-to-day life in Monterey from the albums of local families through its Shades of Monterey project. In 2009 the Library initiated a new segment of this project to conduct on-camera interviews of longtime Monterey residents to capture their treasured memories of life in Monterey. These interviews are now available in the Library's California History Room and Archives, where they provide rich primary source material for historians, researchers and genealogists
