I grew up in the 50's in San Gabriel then moved to Glendora right below the South Hills.
on Haltern. Back then a new home cost us $10,000 with four bedrooms.
Route 66 was the main st for us to cross when we eithe went to school at Roosevelt or
Glendora High. Orange groves are where we as kids lived and played. At that time
in late spring the grass in the groves would be about 2 feet high and so thick you
could fall from an orange tree and it would be like landing on a mattress.
Deer, fox, pheasant, cottentails, jack rabbits, squirrels and so many other types of
critters lived in the groves and the south hills. When we went to play for the day
we could eat delicous oranges, apricots, plums wild rubrub, peaches and so much more.
Route 66 was lined with these groves. Now it is only a sweet memory.
Too bad that the kids of now days will never know the joy of laying in a orange grove in
deep sensous grass looking at the sky and dreaming of tomorrow.
