here's a good mystery...
This photo is also from the Early Pomona book by Mickey Gallivan and the Historical Society of Pomona Valley. When I first saw this photo, I was convinced I knew exactly where it was taken at Lincoln Park. But when I took the book with me to the park, I saw the lines of the 1940's house that I thought it was, were actually quite different. Our friends live there, and assured me that the house was never altered in front. She also pointed out that there was a spanish structure next door in the photo, which I had not even noticed, and which is not next to her house. There is a 1940's house next to a large Spanish home on the east side of the park, but the photo also does not match. I'm puzzled.
So, does anyone think they know where this is? Keep in mind that the photo could be flipped. Winner gets to write a guest post or pick a subject for me to write a post about.
btw, the poster who won the area name contest and came up with the name Clover Dumps never came forward to retrieve their prize. Perhaps I need to come up with some better prizes! Maybe minature goddess of pomona statues? I saw some minature goddess of pomona statues on the bookshelf of the library director yesterday when I walked by his office from outside. He had 3 or 4 of them. And all I had was yet another library fine to pay. Such is the life of this goddess of pomona. THE END
