In the 1950’s, there were many references to things Sig had done much earlier in his life and, as was his habit, he was sure to add the ‘clippings’ to his scrapbook. Thanks, Sig!
Sig didn’t add the date but that didn’t stop me – off to newspapers.com to see what I could find. Sure enough, there was the article on page 24 of the Fresno Bee Republican from April 28, 1952. I guess in 1912 it was big news for two young men to visit Los Angeles.
And while I was looking, I also found this from March 22, 1952 – wonder how Sig missed this?
Oh BOY would I like to know more about this! Sig went to Tijuana? And what did the excitement look like? Did he have trouble getting back into the country? I’m going to have to keep my eyes peeled for more information!
I know that Sig loved to play tennis and, apparently, was quite good at it. I’m sure he was thrilled to see this in the newspaper on October 10, 1955.
It seems that Sig and E.A. Berg seemed to spend a lot of time together – this is the first I’ve heard about the Fresno County Fair.
Street dance? Street dance? I realize Sig was involved in a lot of organizations and activities but a street dance????
Now I need to keep my eyes peeled for the American City – I’d love to read more about the Fresno Commercial Club. I know Sig spent the majority of his career in commercial real estate - I have a TON of scrapbooks with articles about development to prove it!
Earlier in the scrapbook (HERE) I shared a newspaper article and now I’ve found the original photo. If not for the newspaper account, I would have no idea what was going on here on October 26, 1952.
And a very fun article (with a photo) from July 17, 1953. I’ve found lots of photos and other ephemera from their cruises (HERE, HERE, and HERE) but I’ve not seen anything from cruising in 1953. I’m so glad there’s a newspaper article to tell us and even show us a photo!
Six weeks? Now THAT’S a cruise!
Thanks to both of my grandparents for being packrats and scrapbookers!
