The school was in Van Nuys. The school was moved to San Dimas years ago. The bucolic scene above has been replaced by freeways, business, and residential development. The main part of the campus is now under a huge mall.
I was in the second dorm, downstairs, and on this end of the dorm. It was a good school for two or three hundred boys. But it did not seem like home for a seven year old boy.
The rest of this blog is devoted to a dozen or more pictures from the CD that Herb sent. I think they give the feel of the place. Mostly pleasant. Here are links to two of my other blogs about McKinley.
The Marines got their inspiration from this scene.
Thanks Henry. I enjoyed the CD. Good luck on your archiving.
