Photo of the Week
May 25, 2008
This week's photo is significance in many ways. At first I was puzzled as to where this photo was taken, but quickly identified the location with a few key landmarks. The Admin. building is on the hill to the left, Sosa Hill is in the distance, a young Banyan tree lined Roosevelt Avenue is seen behind the troop formation and the best clue is the little octagon shaped building in the center right of the photo. This was the old newspaper, magazine, snack and soda stand in front of the Balboa Train Station that all us Zonians remember so well. Hence, we have a major formation of soldiers, including the band, in front of the Balboa Train Station. What was the occasion to draw this many troops here? Someone very important was about to arrive on the train. Anyone know who?
As time permits, I plan on posting all of the Rodaks photos in a separate presentation. There are many great photos in this collection.
Happy Memorial Day to all and God Bless !!!
