      Good Day Donald… My name is Anthony Manzano, studying the history of the community. I am in amazement that you notice an image that you actually captured and have shared it for mine and future generations to view. Can you give me an idea of where El Sereno ends, passing the the Baridstown Stop (of that era) and where Rose Hills begins, by the lockwood stop. Would you have any recollection about this area…?? In that time frame or currently.

      Sorry to break it to you Mr. Manzano, but the community of Rose Hills is in Whittier. It’s also known as Spy Glass Hill and it is wholly surrounded by Rose Hills Memorial Park. Hope this helps.

    Tony,

    I hate to be the bearer of bad tidings, but a little attention to this picture reveals the following: The picture is over 67 years old, and as Don posted two years ago, he took it, (he was an adult then.)

    Unfortunately he is no longer with us.

    Don was born on April 1st, 1929, and passed away on September 27th 2010. His coverage of Southern California railroading in the 1940’s 50’s 60’s 70’s and 80’s will live on for generations.
