Blythe Gehring with her husband and two children moved to Clifton Park in 1959 where the pending extension of Clifton Boulevard was the subject of hot debate. Her curiosity about the "Park" and the impact the extended road would have on it led to a seven year research project culminating in the publication of "Vignettes of Clifton Park." Original publication date 1970.
