Special Picture # 243 – South Pasadena Hospitality Center – 1943

For the next few weekends, I’ll be posting Special Pictures. These are photos that do not pertain directly to the letters I’m posting but are unique and interesting so I want to share them. Enjoy.

This is a picture I just found of the South Pasadena Hospitality Center in South Pasadena, California, where Lad and Marian met and began dating. This was taken during the summer of 1943. 


Tomorrow, another Special Picture.

On Monday I’ll begin a week of letters written in 1945. Lad and Dick are home. Dan is in France with his bride – and the Army. Ced is still in Anchorage, Alaska, and Dave is in Manila, the Philippines.

  1. No doubt my father visited the same center during his California training a year earlier.

      Adam – WOW. I am continually amazed at the messages I get from people who were at the same place and sometimes the same time, as members of my family. Ced’s trip to the 1934 Chicago World’s Fair had the most associations.
      I’m also surprised at how many boys from Trumbull my uncles met or just missed all over the world. All the young men in all the services really got to see the world during the war..
