Motor Mania

Starbucks buddy Ande McCarren had never heard of Mr. Walker and Mr. Wheeler -- and she's riding shotgun while her grand daughter Stephanie Wheeler has her Learner's Permit.  Incredibly, you can view this 1950 classic at home -- if you've got a fairly new computer and cable or DSL.  Click HERE to enjoy it.

Campus Lab School 1956

Jim Butler graduated from Helix in 1960, but he graduated from San Diego State's Campus Lab School in 1954.  He forwards the 1954 photo AND one from 3rd Grade in 1951.  Click HERE to check them out -- and help us add captions.

Owen Western's BIG in 3-D

Remember when "Wes" Western '63 shared the 3-D photo of his wife Erin among the flowers at Lake Murray.  After a couple of power luncheons in Hollywood it looks like you'll be seeing a lot of Owen's work around.  Click HERE to get caught up.

Oscar's at Euclid and El Cajon

Colin Fort '60 says he was a DMO at the "Circus" Oscar's. That took me back a half century to the scene in "No Time For Sergeants" where Andy Griffith as Will Stockdale proudly announces that he is the barracks PLO. Click HERE to take another look at the Oscar's photo and read what Colin has to say. Click HERE to watch the PLO scene from No Time For Sergeants.

Camp Cuyamaca

Tuesday's request for Camp Cuyamaca alumni who might want to be on the field at PetCo Park this weekend took me back to Bob Richardson's page of photos and memories. I've added some of the emails received this week AND posted the Camp Palomar songbook and Ken Burton's Camp Marston photo at the top of the Memories Page. Click HERE to go there.

Howard Rozelle Mystery Aerial

I'm hoping Betty and Bob can figure out this Howard Rozelle photo from 1946-1947. I always thought it was Chula Vista, but I'm secretly hoping it's Kensington, overlooking Mission Valley. Click HERE to be magically transported to the San Diego Photo page and see the shot enlarged.

The Aztec Drive-In

Wanna see a couple of shots of the Aztec Drive-In? Click HERE. I don't remember the Aztec. I DO remember Keith's Drive-In on El Cajon, which looked a lot like this. If you visited Keith's today you'd be on the bridge over the 805.
