moved -- or just have fond memories of San Diego in the '40s, '50s and '60s.

July 21, 2017

Nancy and I finally got out to Horace Mann this past Monday.  Janice Ricca Hom had emailed me that she drove by "and they were tearing it down!"  I don't think they're tearing it down, but it would appear there is a major addition going in.  The photo above looks north toward the administration building.  The photo below looks east with Trojan Avenue at the right.  Click HERE to look at a 1959 aerial that may help you get oriented.

Ernie Cowan's birdwatching column in last Saturday's U-T features the Common Yellowthroat.  Click HERE to check it out.

The Westgate Hotel, at 2nd and Broadway, sparkles in this photo circa 1965, from Greg May's Vintage San Diego Facebook Page.   

Guess what?  You can order Abba Zaba candy bars -- and all manner of other vintage candy -- on line from  Make sure you've got your dentist on speed-dial.

Dana Carr '64 went looking for his childhood neighbor Betty McCoy on the internet.  "We moved to Michael Street the summer  I started Horace Mann. She lived on 55th Street" he wrote.  Sadly, Dana found a Facebook page that said Betty McCoy Cook passed away on September 22, 2016.  Her sister, Linda McCoy Petersen, confirms her passing.  "She passed peacefully, in her sleep, from cancer," said Linda.
