I think Happy Jacks had 2 locations (one on Azusa and one at foot of the flood control dam on Rosemead Blvd). Rosemead Happy Jacks pre-dates my memory but I do remember Azusa Happy Jacks. I once saw Rosie Greer (NFL great)in the mid 70`s at Happy Jacks.<quoted text>
Happy Jack's Fish Farm was up on Azusa (Highway 39) just below the base of the mountain - just south and around the bend from the old Canyon Inn. There was a dairy across the street and they had a buffalo there, too. Happy Jacks was owned by Jack and Bub Corcoran and the Dairy was owned by the Schlange family.
I also remember the wooden timber bridge that went over Marano Beach. Also remember the produce store called the Egg Hut just before Marano Beach. Also, my mom went to Mark Keppel HS in the late 50`s and the Keppel school band played at the grand opening of Legg Lake around 1958. Back then all the trees were small yearlings. Before that, Legg Lake was migrant worker strawberry fields in the 30`s and 40`s.
