It's time for a little "housecleaning"; I'm going to sweep out the dust bunnies and remove some cobwebs, and throw out that giant bag of Confederate money that I found above the bedroom closet. And I'm going to share some scans that have been sitting around, eating my food and running up my phone bill. They have to earn their keep!
As I continue to scrounge through old previously-ignored slides, I keep coming back to this little family's photos. And while this one had turned an unpleasant pink, I still loved the fact that it was a rare night photo of the beloved Carnation milk truck. It's hard to tell, but the kid is wearing his souvenir Donald Duck "squeaky" hat.
This next photo is from September 1976, and is taken from right about where that kid was in the first picture. We are looking past some faux flowers at the Century Clock Shop, which is where the Upjohn Pharmacy had been until 1970. The clock shop opened in 1972.
And finally, a look at Tom Sawyer Island and "Castle Rock", looking very raw and new in this undated photo. Look at all the kids and grownups enjoying themselves!
