The Trivune photo, dated October 25, 1953, has the following caption attached to the back: "No one seems to have an explanation for Weaverville's circular staircasees. No other California city has them." At center, there is a two-storey house with a store on the ground floor, the Trinity Gas Co., which sells propane applicances. A circular staircase makes an 180 degree turn to the second floor, which apepars tobe a private residence. At left center there is a bakery. [A circular staircase is a well-used architectural feature where space for a straight staircase is limited. What is the uniqueness of Weaverville's? JM 11/14/2000]
