This is the story of Palm Springs in its golden years, a city that had it all, including marvelous midcentury Modern architecture, fabulous fly-in hotels, and a swinging nightlife. Through vintage photographs, postcards, and other ephemera, Palm Springs Holiday recalls the Palm Springs area from the 1910s through the 1960s, where people vacationed in the desert, dined, danced, and lounged poolside. Features vintage images of the Coachella Valley and shots of the area's famous hotels and gambling dens. Peter Moruzzi is the author of Havana Before Castro: When Cuba Was a Tropical Playground. An architectural historian by profession, he is an acknowledged expert on midcentury Modern architecture and design. He is the founding president of the Palm Springs Modern Committee, an organization dedicated to preserving modern architecture and historic neighborhoods in the Coachella Valley. He lives in Los Angeles and Palm Springs. Visit the golden era of this foremost desert resort.
