    Description:

    When we walked into this house we found it hard to believe that there had been other sales because there was SO MUCH STUFF! Beautiful stuff like crystal, silver and china. Guy stuff like baseball cards, beer steins, and barbecues. Practical stuff like small appliances, cookware, a dining room table, kitchen table, a day bed, sound equipment, electronics and tvs. Many were still in the box. Amazing stuff like a Yamaha electronic piano and a round glass table with so much class. There are about 700 cookbooks, including many complete sets and the very high quality celebrity ones, and racks and closets filled with women's clothing. Then we started poking around and found more stuff that hasn't been seen in years! With your help we can finally empty this house!

    This lecture will relate the history of the West End from the first land divisions during the Gold Rush to the present day. Vintage maps and photographs will help us track the first railroads, bathing resorts, and industries. Webster as the West End “Main Street” will receive due note, as will 20th century icons like Neptune Beach, Bethlehem shipyard, the Naval Air Station, and the wartime housing projects. Along the way we will see how the area’s rich history is reflected in its wealth of well-preserved architecture.
