South Tacoma Book Talk

Darlyne A. Reiter will talk about her new book South Tacoma, a photo-rich history of this vibrant neighborhood. It began in the mid-1880s as a cemetery center until 1890 when the Northern Pacific Railway moved its railroad shops from downtown Tacoma to this prairie land. From those beginnings, the community has evolved into a vital neighborhood with many family-owned businesses and a "small city within a big city".

Darlyne A. Reiter is a Tacoma resident and Tacoma Historical Society member. The collection of images used in the book belong to the people of South Tacoma: families, businesses, churches, schools, clubs, and more eagerly shared their photographs and the stories behind them.
