City of Davis branded gift items are available in downtown Davis for last-minute holiday shoppers.

The city of Davis throw blanket can be found along with “Hamburger Patty” and “Enjoy the Ride, Davis, California” T-shirts at the UC Davis Bookstore, 630 Second St. The 50-by-66-inch throw ($45.95) features 12 iconic Davis images, including the train station, a high-wheeled bicycle, the former Davis arches, Central Park and Historic City Hall.

The whimsical, sunglasses-wearing cow riding a bicycle is known by many locals as the Hamburger Patty T-shirt. Since its introduction almost 20 years ago, it has been spotted in countries all over the world. The white T-shirt with a colorful imprint is available in adult ($16.95) and children’s ($12.95) sizes.

The cream-colored “Enjoy the Ride, Davis, California” T-shirts with a bicycle imprint are also available in the same sizes and for the same retail price.

The newly reprinted “Davisville ’68” history book by author Joann Leach Larkey and illustrator Jeanette Nunn Copley is exclusively available at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. and at the Hattie Weber Museum, 445 C St. in Central Park. It sells for $25.50 plus tax.

The book details the early history of the original Davis ranches, the modes of travel that were used and the development of Davisville after it was created in 1868 as a railroad stop. Other sections cover how the University of California came to Davis and the development of businesses, public schools, churches, cemeteries and local government. More recent history covers the war years, civic and social organizations and local recreational facilities.

The second part of the book presents the biographies of the many local pioneer families, including the Chiles, Davis, Drummond, Hamel, LaRue, Lillard, Oeste, Peña, Russell, Montgomery and Weber families.

The book was published originally in 1968 as part of the Davisville centennial festivities and was recently out of print. With the 100th anniversary of the city of Davis incorporation approaching in 2017, the city and its Historic Resources Management Commission reprinted the book.

The sales of all city of Davis branded merchandise benefits city programs. For more information, call Bob Bowen, city of Davis public relations manager, at 530-747-5816.
