Old Town Whittier

Published by Willie Garcia

Take a look at this 1890 picture of Uptown Whittier.
This picture was taken on Philadelphia St., looking South onto Greenleaf Ave. towards Whittier Blvd.

If this picture was taken today the photographer would be standing near The Starbucks on the corner of Philadelphia St. and Greenleaf Ave.

Notice the C Trueblood General Merchandise store selling Sperry flour from Stockton California.

Can you imagine riding your horse up to the store and fastening it to the wooden stalls (parking) notice the wooden water buckets under the stall and the hauling wagons in the distance.

Halloween in Michigan Park

Halloween and the friendly spirits! 

We love how the Michigan Park residence in Whittier are always into the Halloween spirit. We begin to notice the Halloween decorations going up as early as late September. This neighborhood in Whittier gets hundreds of trick-a-treaters every year and is well known for giving out plenty of candies. 

Right before dusk you begin to see the neighbors in Michigan Park preparing for the trick-a-treaters. You hear the scary music playing in the background, the strobe lights flashing and you feel the excitement of Halloween.

If you are considering coming out to Michigan Park to trick-a-treat, you want to stay between College Ave and Ocean View Ave, Whittier Bl. and Mar Vista St. this is where all the fun is at.

What do you like about Halloween?
