Congratulations go to Joseph Vicenti who was the first to identify the last mystery spot as the Las Palmas restaurant building on E. Main. Many of you correctly identified it, but he was the first. By the way, Joseph had an edge as he had previously researched the building’s history. Nice work Joseph!
Okay, here are the clues for the next one:
2) Superior Court Judge Wheaton Gray lived there.
3) The home was later converted into a funeral home.
4) People now hold meetings there.
Army Float Parade Entry
Recently, Guy Shelly, a long-time Visalian, was going through a family photo album and found this interesting shot. Probably taken about 1950, it shows Army soldiers with mortars on the back of an Army truck. This apparently was a parade entry during the Korean War era. The background of the photo shows south side Main Street between Court and Locust streets. J. J. Newberrys was at 127-129 W. Main, Locey Shoes at 119 W. Main and the Janzen Jewelry store with their street clock was at 111 W. Main. Notice the people on top of the building dangling their legs over the side. Can you imagine people to do that today?

*** The Hyde Ranch Dairy story in the last HH posting caused many of you to wonder about other Visalia area dairies. Pratt, Campbells, Swansons—can you think of any others? Also the subject of milk bottles came up, too. Anybody know what VMDA stands for on a milk bottle? Also was there a dairy associated with VMDA?
