Old Sac Jewelers

Another photo from Old Sacramento State Historic Park. While we were approaching Sacramento on our way to San Francisco, my dad and I discussed whether we would make a stopover in Sacramento, but when a traffic information sign mentioned that Old Sacramento was only five minutes away, the decision was easily made and it turned out to be more than worth the small detour. This is Skalet Family Jewelers, established in 1897 by Russian-born goldsmith Ben Skalet, who had arrived in New York City ten years earlier. In the background you can also just see the Eagle Theatre, a reconstruction of the first theatre building in California.
