Jill Gipson continues to share some priceless old photos, this time two pictures taken in April 1960. Mrs. Gedda’s third-fourth grade class from Emerson School took a field trip to Olivera Street, probably as a unit on early California history.


In this picture, Mrs. Gedda can be seen about mid picture (plaid dress, white sunglasses). That’s Jill Gipson facing the camera (holding the paper) and John Mancini behind her. Joanne Wood and Debbie Brewer have their backs to the camera in the foreground, and Janet Nelson is over Debbie’s right shoulder in profile (with glasses). Yes, that does look like me, Kathy Au on the far left! Jill’s mom was on the trip with us and took the photos.

In this picture of a wishing well, you can see is (L-R) Becky Hand, John Mancini, Marilyn Kasper, Jill Gipson, and Susan Persen .

Thank you, Jill, for sharing!
