And the winner of the first ever "Where in Pomona is this Photo" contest:
So it was an impressive win by "Back in the 909" who came up with the correct location for the Pomona mystery photo, apparently without even leaving the house. Reader Ed confirmed the accuracy of BIT909's geuss yesterday and I went to Gafield Park just now and photographed it. You probably need to blow up today's photo to see the houses from the original photo in the background. I thought it would be nice to get the Goddess and soldier statue in there to get perspective.
So BIT909, please email me to receive your prize.
I agree with Ed that getting out of your car and taking in Garfield Park is something that everyone should do. I know someone's going to make fun of me, but Garfield Park kind of reminds me of Jackson Square in New Orleans. It would be nice to honor Pomona's war dead, of which I fear there have been one too many of in Iraq. THE END
