Carlisle & Co., 1911. Pp 212 + 12 pages of plates. Illustrated. 8vo, green cloth, gilt lett. front and spine. Wright was also the author of Banking in California 1849 to 1910, and the present volume likewise concentrates on business history; nevertheless, the author has a lively sense of anecdote and conveys many esoteric anecdotes about the city's turbulent first half-century. Like most of his contemporaries, he was awed by the great canal then nearing completion, and writes optimistically of the mercantile and mililtary benefits expected to accrue therefrom.
