DON’T HAVE THE exact date, but the processor stamped March 1979 on the back of this photo. I took the picture because Mount Cuyamaca, which you probably can’t see, was completely covered in snow. Miller’s West Department Store was closed, but still extant on the right, and an older version of Denny’s was on the left. Beyond the Art Leitch Real Estate sign Al Jones’ Casa Aljones Mexican Restaurant was still in business.
