John Baker is the creator of the www.cougartown.com, one of the best places for a nostalgic glimpse of what it was like growing up in the 60s in the South Bay, especially Hawthorne. True, it is the Hawthorne High School website, but after 50 years, I don’t let deter me from reliving that time by visiting the site occasionally. If you have not explored it, I would strongly suggest doing so.
At any rate, today I got the following email from John.
Long time since we last talked.
I received an email from a guy who lives in England. He had found a photo album in Venice CA in 1990 and is trying to find out who the people are in the photos. All his detective work points to the Hawthorne area. Thought I would check with you and your group to see if you would know either of these two people. These were taken in 1968 and the people have what looks to be a 4 year old. I’m thinking they would have graduated around our era. I have posted this info on Cougartown and maybe you could add it to the 63 Leuzinger site.
The Blog where all the info is, can be found here:
Any help would be appreciated and please let me know if you, or any of your group know these people.
Thanks for the help Don,
Does either Barb or Bob look familiar? As John states, they may not even be from the South Bay.
If you click on the link in his email, there some additional deduced details about them and a few photos of the local area taken during the 60s.
If you think that you have some information that may help to locate either Barb or Bob, please email John Baker at firstname.lastname@example.org. It would be interesting to us to also post a comment here.
It is an interesting mystery.
