GROCERY STORES OF YESTERYEAR

The San Anselmo Historical Commission rolls back the clock to the first half of the 20th century for a new display, “Grocery Stores of Yesteryear.” It was a time when there were numerous small grocery, produce and meat markets in San Anselmo's downtown area and scattered in its neighborhoods. The display in the hallway outside the Historical Museum (lower level of the Library) highlights some of these stores with vintage photographs and advertisements. Be sure to stop by to see it!

Art Talk Tuesday


Casanova: The Seduction of Europe
Tuesday, February 13
12pm, Council Chambers
Renowned today for his amorous pursuits, Casanova was known to his contemporaries as a charming and witty conversationalist, an expert on many topics, and an international man of letters -- he was also a gambler, a spy, and one of history's greatest travelers. Rita Dunlay, a docent from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, will share paintings, sculptures, costumes, and more to bring Casanova's world of travel, seduction, and theater to life.
