Kate Glondo (b. 1911 to Francis Mynavich Maritich) talks about her family's Croatian roots and migration to Roslyn, Washington. She talks about gardening, wine-making, lodges, burial customs, holidays, recreation, and her career as midwife. She talks about her marriage to Joe Glondo circa 1928, and his work in the No. 3 and No. 7 Mines. She discusses the effects of Prohibition and World Wars I and II on Roslyn.
The cover image shows Roslyn, circa 1940. The photograph was taken from the intersection of First Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. Many of the businesses that lined the east side of Pennsylvania Avenue can be seen. On the left in the foreground is the Brick Saloon, which was managed by W. Sullivan. The next business was the Pioneer Grocery Store owned by Stephen Kuchin. The Panerio and Ramsay Barber Shops were also on this side of the street.
