Report on March 1st Wednesday Program

1-1st Wed - March 2013Historian Richard Torney was the speaker at the March First Wednesday program.  The subject was the history of Kentfield and Greenbrae.  His large collection of photographs, some over a hundred years old, told the story.  He was particularly clever at relating each scene to familiar present day  landmarks, e.g., the College of Marin, or the Bon Air 6 - Q & Ashopping center. During the Q & A period, old timers in the audience who had grown up in the area added their own information on specific buildings and people that Richard had mentioned.  Richard has appeared numerous times at First Wednesday programs, often speaking on the history of railroads in Marin.4 - Flooding in Kentfield
