Vintage Photo Friday
Yucca Boulevard, Yucca Valley, 1952
(click on photo to embiggen)
On of our favorite areas is the tri-city area of Yucca Valley, Joshua Tree and 29 Palms in California's high desert. It's a bit cooler here than the Palm Springs area and waaaaay more funky and rural. The desert vistas are amazing.
I borrowed this photo from the Los Angeles Public Library Photo Archives. It is from their Herald Examiner collection. The description reads, "Business signs (G&M Market, Callahan's, Hi-Desert Hardware, Union 76, Valley Rexall Drugs, Real Estate) advertise on this stretch of Yucca Boulevard. A Joshua tree is in the foreground and mountains provide a backdrop to the town." Photo dated July 20, 1952 (which just happens to be my birthday)!
The season is gearing up in the tri-city area. Check out The Sun Runner's Calendar for upcoming events. Stay cool for the weekend everyone!
