1 Bacon, George H. Booming and Panicking on Puget Sound
Bellingham, WA Pioneer Press 1970 First Edition Wraps Near Fine 
Near fine copy of first edition in pictorial wraps, not issued in hard cover. Very light sticker shadow in upper right corner of front cover, old price sticker on back cover lower left. Unpaginated with many pages of 1930's Whatcom County business ads at the end of the book. This is a captivating memoir written in 1933 by an early settler/business person in the area now known as Whatcom County. The author came to this area to facilitate loans for business, residential and farm land. His investors were East Coast sources. The descriptions of traveling and doing business in this area in the late 1800's are captivating. Whatcom County has a history of real estate boom and bust, the author was in the thick of it here in the late 1800's through the Great Depression. As an example of "some things never change" in Bellingham, there is discussion of a residential zoning dispute on Eldridge Avenue! The author owned 40 acres and sold lots in the Bellingham area now known as Happy Valley, that part of the book is interesting. Bacon addresses why Skagit County generally did not experience the boom and bust real estate cycles that Whatcom County did. He owned land and businesses in Skagit County, but primarily focused on Whatcom County real estate. We specialize in books about Bellingham and the surrounding area.
