The upper two pictures are of kids in the Oak Street / Jones Road neighborhood. They
were taken in the late 1940s. They were sent by Bruce Lutz. I'll add names if someone
can send them. I recognize Lynn Lutz, Kurt Anderson and myself. (Dan Malloy) Maybe Billy
Hall, too. Where are you, Billy? Last I knew you were in Torrance, California, but that was
more than fifty years ago. (Since I wrote that, Bill has been "discovered," thanks to his
nephew Ryan, who found this site. Through Ryan, I was able to contact Bill. Bill looked at
this page and said that he's on the right end of the middle picture.) Dave Atkinson emailed
me to say that the boy who is second from left in both pictures is Bobby Streeter.
Later I heard from Kurt Anderson who said, "In the picture where you are on the left; (the
second picture), I think that the fellow on the right of the tall kid is Jim Curley, and the one
on the right of you is Al Grey."
Bruce also sent the one at the bottom. Here's what he had to say about it:
Bottom picture. Taken in 1949.
It appears to have been a birthday party in the Jones Road/Oak St. neighborhood
A few days later I received the following from Karen Caufield Pendleton: Hey Dan, thanks
for the pictures, I recognized you right away, and it just so happens that it is my birthday
party in bottom photo. Is one of the girls a Draper, Judy, maybe? And I think that possibly
the boy is my cousin, one of the Baer boys, but am not sure.
identifications below. It must have been Karen Pendleton who sent them as part of the
