Sorry - top LEFT corner! It says Champa and 16th...

Good catch!  I have fixed the typo. Thank you Patrick!

My mother worked at the Gates Rubber Company starting around 1958. I remember going with her on the weekend when she had to work overtime ... staying quiet. I remember her going to the Credit Union to take care of her banking. I remember the Christmas parties for the employees children. I remember the Clinic where I went when I was sick. THANK YOU for posting this.

Christmas parties for Gates Rubber Company employees' children? I'm impressed they did that! Thank you for sharing these memories of Gates, Pam. 

I went to Alcott Elementary in 1954. The school is on the opposite corner of 41st. Elitches is at 38th, three blocks south!

Thank you for the comment!  You're right, Alcott Elementary was just opposite the vantage point of the Tennyson Street view. It was a beautiful building (see photos in the digital collections.)
