The Mariposa Big Trees in 1917
Aunt Irene in 1918, James Bayard in a spiffy suit, and a picture of Main Street in Lemoine. I can’t find a town named Lemoine.
Out for a Sunday ride, and running into car trouble.
1919 at Don Pedro. I think that’s Aunt Irene with the really cool hat; I can’t identify others in this or the other photo. Since the original dam was not built until 1923, I’m not sure what Don Pedro was at the time, except an old gold mining site.
At the Tuolumne River. I can’t identify the people in the photos.
1920. Asilomar. I’m not sure of the event.
More photos from trip to Asilomar in 1920, I guess.
Seventeen Mile Drive.
At the Presidio in Monterey.
Trip to Santa Cruz
More photos from the trip to Santa Cruz. I’m pretty sure that’s Aunt Irene in the first photo.
Aunt Irene in the first photo, on a car trip in the Dodge which takes them to Livermore.
Trip to Saratoga in 1921, including attendance at the Blossom Festival and a concert by the C.O.P. choir
A trip to the Lick Observatory up the Mt. Hamilton Road. Looks like they might have had some car trouble.
They seem to have taken a trip to ‘The Ranch’ and are returning. Not sure where the ranch was. That’s Aunt Irene and Cletus Burns among the four in the first photo, and Aunt Irene and Cletus in the third photo. One of the cars in the second photo must be the ‘Dodge’ referred to in earlier pages.
Aunt Irene must have taken a trip to San Juan Bautista and the mission in 1924.
Aunt Irene and Cletus Burns on a trip to Santa Cruz, probably the same trip where they stopped at San Juan Bautista, on April 1, 1924. I can’t identify the couple in the third photo. This is the second time a photo of Cletus has been labelled ‘Pader’. I don’t know what that means.
Another trip to Santa Cruz, this one in October of 1924. I can’t identify the two men in the second photo. Apparently the car is called ‘Lizzie’. In case you haven’t been noticing, the men put on coats and ties to go on picnics and to the beach.
Some ceremony in Milpitas in 1922, and a photo of Cletus Burns.
There were photos earlier of a trip to Don Pedro, I think before the dam was built in 1923. These are from June of 1924. As impressive as it appears in the photos, it was apparently too small to be of much value, and was rebuilt in its current form years later.
More photos of the Don Pedro dam and environs, from 1924.
It seems James Bayard Ludwig was on the trip to Don Pedro dam; I can’t identify the neighborhood bunch
A trip in July, 1924 took in Sutter’s Fort and the campus at Davis, in these photos.
Based on the side note, the G.O. Wagner home is in Long Beach, maybe from the trip they took which we’ll see photos of on the following pages. Not sure who Wagner is. Nor have I any idea about the wrecked car from 1919. The other two are from a trip to Clear Lake in 1924.
July, 1924. Russian River
In Oct 1924 they visited Santa Cruz. That’s Aunt Irene in the first photograph with a friend; and Cletus in tahe second photograph with the same woman as in the photo with Aunt Irene, and another fellow. In June 1924 they witnessed a forest fire in Madera County. In Sept of 1924, they made a trip south which took in Coronado Beach. We’ll see more of the trip in the following pages.
The Sept 1924 trip south took in Los Angeles, San Diego, and Tijuana, Mexico. Also, two photos of Cletus Burns, one with and one without the jacket.
The Sept 1924 trip south took them through Santa Barbara and Ventura counties.
Part of the facing page, a photo of San Juan Capistrano mission, from the Sept 1924 trip south.
The San Juan Capistrano mission in Sept 1924
Aunt Irene and Uncle Pete Burns in their Sept 1924 trip south. We saw Roy and Dottie on a previous page in Santa Cruz, but without names. The photo of Aunt Irene is the same location as the one of Cletus Burns four pages earlier. Mission San Miguel is in a rather decrepit state.
