The removal of early California history.

In my little town I grew up in there was an adobe structure very much like the Spanish missions of early California. It sat far back about a hundred yards from the nearby boulevard. It was something like an apartment or dormitory building instead. An adobe dwelling that was framed with leafy cypress and eucalyptus trees. Giving the appearance of a peaceful place to live. Some did say it was a Catholic convent. A dwelling for Nuns. It had a classic wavy stucco over stone or brick and was a two story with a red tile roof and wide Roman arches on the lower level. Lower level also with a tile roof. Architecture Pretty much from the early post Spanish Colonial influence. Certainly, worth saving and placing on a historical registry.
But, nope! It was completely torn down to the dirt level. It is now the parking lot for the city hall and police department. Oh, so sad.

I come from a family who migrated from the parched red dirt Plaines of southern rural Oklahoma. Migrating to blue collar working class community of East Los Angeles. There is where I was born. I am Mr. Writermelon. I can only write what my grammar and spell checker allows. I am neither profound nor profane. Boy howdy! Send comment to:
