We arrived in Pasadena at 3:23 p.m. on Tuesday, June 29th after passing a little old lady driving a little Nash Rambler! The Feynes Mansion, a Beaux-Arts style built in 1905, currently houses the Pasadena Museum of History.
Come January 1, 2011, when we watch the 97th Rose Bowl game, we would be able to say "We were there!" - well, we were just outside the stadium - haa haa
Back in 1890, instead of the modern well-known Tournament of Roses or the televised Rose Bowl parade, foot races, tugs of war and even burro races were held along this famous route (above photo) in Pasadena.
The Golden Spur and its Giant Boot still “kicking” after all these years! This Golden Spur Restaurant in Glendora is now an upscale establishment. It was far from its humble beginning in 1920’s when it was a “ride-up” hamburger stand serving customers who rode up to the counter on horses!
I love this photo of the American flags lining the main street in Azusa. I also like the story where the town got its name "Azusa" from a local general store which claimed that it had "everything from A to Z that made in the USA"!
