Prune picker

Prune picker is a Depression Era term for a native Californian. It was not a complement. In the thirties when I was a boy there were times that I was the only prune picker in a group. Everyone else had been born somewhere else.

Pomona, California 1925

This is a picture of the Pomona Valley taken the year I was born. Sure looks different now.

The area is now completely covered with cities and freeways.
