Hospitalectomy

This looks like the building, but did they cut it in half and just save the facade?

Right of way

No traffic signs?
Where's car 24 and car 26?

I was born there, too...

I was born there, too, in 1943. My birth certificate was issued by the Department of Agriculture!

Street Signs

I noticed no stop or yield signs of any kind other than the "Slo School." When did traffic lights and stop signs become commonplace or required by law?

Birthplace of Shorpyite

I was born there about 41 years later. They saved my life. Elsewhere, the experimental surgery would not have been possible. In 1924, I definitely would not have made it!

SLO SCHOOL

I like the "Slo School" sign on the right. It almost looks hand painted.
