The Zalba collection includes the business history of a bakery operated by Basques in Hollister, California. They catered
to the local Basques, performing services such as finding them employment in the mines and loaning them money. They also provided
supplies for the mines at New Idria.
Mrs. Estephania Zalba came to the United States in the 1890's. She married Frank (Francisco) Zalba [second husband?] and after
his death [ca. 1920?] ran the business with her nephew. She died in the early 1940's.
