Huge Children Sale

Stopped at a red light, I noticed a sign on the corner (center of photo though the car window) for a 'Huge Children Sale'. I wasn't sure if they meant lots of children or really big children. For those of you interested, this sale was in the City of Davison, Genesee County.

1970 - Avila Adobe

In honor of Cinco de Mayo, I give you the Avila Adobe. Olvera Street, Historic El Pueblo.

From the accompanying plaque:

This is the oldest existing house in Los Angeles. Built about 1818 by Don Francisco Avila, it was occupied briefly as American headquarters in 1847. Severely damaged in the earthquake of 1971, the house is now restored as an example of California life style of the 1840s.
