Sacramento — California’s transportation crossroads — was home to railroads, riverboats, canneries, breweries, grain mills, lumber mills, wineries, slaughterhouses, dairies, drying and packing houses, bakeries, and thousands of migrant and immigrant industrial workers. Join historian William Burg for a fascinating look at the city they called “The Big Tomato.”
Presented by William Burg, Sacramento County Historical Society
