Bertha, Edward and Ruth.  Les in pipe. In 1939, I moved my family to Oro Grande, California. While we lived in Oro Grande, I sold aluminum ware, pots and pans, door to door. We only stayed for 6 months, but we enjoyed out time in this interesting little town north of Victorville. The trains passed close by our cabin and kept us alert. The Mojave River was within walking distance. The kids, Edward, Lester, and Bertha, had a high time living and playing in Oro Grande. One picture shows Edward climbing on a freight train. Carrying a duffle bag and crawling up the freight car’s steps, he appears headed for that tall country that attracts many young men for one reason or another.
