Comments

Increasingly rare "The Resources of California" - a monthly publication promoting California to settlers and tourists. This issue focuses entirely on Sonoma County. The Fountaingrove commune and winery was founded in 1875 by utopian visionary and free-love pioneer Thomas Lake Harris. Many advertisements by local businesses.
