Tustin as it once was, by Juanita Lovret

 

Juanita's Tustin As It Once Was features her personal remembrances of life growing up in Tustin. Her wonderful writing style entertains while it informs.
This beautiful book from History Press features over 140 pages with articles and photos from the earliest years, through Tustin's periods of growth and change, its booming agriculture period, and then as it was touched by World War II. The book moves on to the late 20th century where the new freeways hurt local businesses and the city annexed neighboring territory allowing it to grow into the community it is today.
