Pomona Power: Flex It.
Today's photo comes to us from reader Skrip, who hails from Pomona's far east side of town. He and his wife live one block from Montclair and two blocks from Claremont. In other words, one block from another county, and two blocks from another country. Skrip points out that his photo captures "red sweetgum and citrus, stick plum trees, angel trumpets and a distant ash tree, heck even mt.baldy is down there somewhere... oh yeah, and the darn electric pole (the centerpiece)." Beautiful Pomona. I sure wish Jim Morrison had wrote the Pomona equivalent to L.A. Woman.
Anduhrew over at Student in Pomona describes his favorite snapshot of Pomona, a view I don't know but will be sure to check out. My favorite that comes to mind is the red-lettered "Pomona Flowers" sign on Garey. Sadly, the burnt out lights were finally fixed, so the sign no longer reads "Pomona Flow," yet it still provides a rather mystical presence as you drive up Garey at night.
