In fact, coming back from camp, San Bernardino was like…Emerald City. I can, because all my recollections start in camp. I don’t remember before camp at all.

But I can remember taking the train to the station there. They looked, it’s kind of Moorish looking, but it was so exotic to me. I can still remember as a kid, saying wow, this is like, a wonderful place.

There’s that department store called the Harris Company, it’s only three stories high, but they had flags on it, draping stuff on it. I remember looking up, we took a cab from there to our store and looking at that building and saying, wow, you know, this is, this is the big city here.
