Well, the Times- Standard guessed right again. They figured I might want to comment on a short story in their paper today on traveling to San Francisco back in the days of old. They were right. I did want to comment on it so they didn't put the story up on their web page.
But all is not lost. The story did include a link to the Humboldt Historical Society web site. Being a bit of a history buff, how did I miss that site all these years?
Looks like the story I was interested in today is one of the articles that Susanne Forsyth, editor of the Humboldt Historian, submits each month. They haven't updated their page yet to include the story I read this morning but here's the one from last month.
I got excited when I saw a link to the Society's periodical, the Humboldt Historian. I used to enjoy reading that magazine years ago. A friend at work used to bring them in for people to read. Boy, now I can read that magazine again!
I ended up disappointed as the link just leads to a list of stories in the current issue. No good reading to be found online.
I guess I'll have to join the Historical Society one of these days if only to subscribe to their magazine.
