Vintage Outtakes: Mount Palomar Observatory 1966


These are two scans from the big box of my dad’s photos. The date written on the back of each is January 1, 1966. He loved astronomy and day trips. So, the run from our home in Redondo Beach, California to Mt. Palomar was one he took many times over the decades.  Yes, it does snow near San Diego in Winter.  This may have been Southern California in the 1960’s, but only full-sized “low priced three” American cars can be seen in these shots.


This is my first contribution and I hope you like it. I have many family old pictures. I hope to write a CC Kids article showing our ’55 Pontiac and myself as a little tyke.
