About the Book:

As early as 1910, Oxnard was known as the “Biggest Little City on the Coast,” when the population was a mere 2,200. A hundred years later, the population topped 200,000, and Oxnard became the most populous city in Ventura County. Built around the largest sugar processing plant in the world in 1898, the city now hosts an 800,000-square-foot Amazon fulfillment center on the land that once grew sugar beets.

About the Author:

In his 11th book for Arcadia Publishing, Jeffrey Wayne Maulhardt has documented some of the past and present images that have grown out of the history of Oxnard.
