quote="Elefino"]Back then there was a "Low Road" that ran along the bottom of the canyon next to the river (creek?). I believe that road got washed away during a bad rainstorm later on
Best as I remember on the old low road in the 50's was what remained of the old Wildwood Lodge was two rather large rock fireplaces with tall chimmenys. at each end of the old lodge and foundations. across the road was the very large wildwood swimming hole that you had to pay to get in. we spent a lot of time there and it was a famous weekend party place with the S&T , glendale and San Fernando teen's. I haven't been back there after 1954 and I think the swimming hole got wiped out in the late 50's or 60's. of course there was ever changing swimming holes up and down Big T. cyn as the water flowed all the time.
kennedy pool , our car club the flamingos held a dance there it was a lot of fun.
Pop's willow lake, great time had by all.
Hansen Dam, boat races and swimming time.
Indian Springs, Montrose. high diveing board and fun
Lancaster lake , us kids usually went to the weekend catered company ( shopping bag market , ect, ect ) picnics and nobody cared.
we always had a great time. Ed Brandenburg and I worked our senior year for A OK catering who owned lankaster lake then. we drove the origional roach coach's that were built on a pickup and had to use charcoal to heat the coffe and hot food. they finnaly gave me a propane heated truck. the main office was in LA and our routes were in LA. with about 20 stops each and it was a night shift. to bad our young men can't find this kind of work nowdays....
Sterlings origional old resturant, everyone went with thier familys for the wonderfull Chicken dinners on sat and sun.
