DRAWING SONOMA

BookCoverIn 1999, Barbara White Perry began documenting Sonoma Valley’s most captivating historic properties and buildings that few people have ever seen. Her entire body of work to date, over forty-five images and written history, is entitled DRAWING SONOMA. Barbara soon discovered that familiar barns or unusual properties and vistas were disappearing. A sub-category of DRAWING SONOMA was born. GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN is her series of ink and vine-charcoal drawings documenting structures and vistas forever lost to time, neglect or development.


A SAMPLE OF STORIES IN THE BOOK:

ASummerPlacebigSummer Place “I have admired this unique small house for a very long time. It sits empty along Arroyo Seco Creek at Bartholomew Park, on what was originally Count Agoston Haraszthy’s property, Buena Vista. Like Nancy Drew, I felt there was a mystery to its life….”

Angela Grasso Home “While on a walk, I saw a very interesting front wall and gate, but could see nothing else. I contacted the owners who live in San Francisco. I was given permission to open the gate and go inside. What a surprise!”

MysteryHousebigMystery House on Arnold Drive “How many times have you traveled south on Arnold Drive, looked to the east, and wondered about this house? It is a barn, a ranch style house, and has a second floor perched almost precariously on top….”
