Pomona: Rising Up from the Ashes
Last night there was a fire in an industrial building at San Antonio and 3rd. The fire, which created our newest vacant lot, was of suspicious origin and there has already been one person arrested. Good work, Pomona P.D. No word yet if the suspected arsonist works with Walgreens or has any affiliation with the CRA. (Inside joke there for anyone who read my Coates' posts.)
Here's what the building looks like this morning. Richard, who shot the photo, said that it was an old building that had once been a bowling alley and also a moose lodge.
Here's a building at 263 Locust which was the victim of a fire bomb or something back in the day. I'm glad the piano survived. Thanks to the Library's digital collections for this one.
Also seen around town by Richard, are these signs on Second Street, announcing it's closure from Friday midnight to Saturday 5 p.m. for a "special event."
Anyone notice this mysterious metal creature that Richard caught on film, somewheres around the fairgrounds? I would have preferred a giant goddess sculpture, but then again I'm partial towards her, of course.
