Test your knowledge of Nevada County history



A field day was enjoyed by our TIMELINES guy! The three-part quiz to identify the Oct. 13 photo of Dr. Arch McPherson, former mayor of Nevada City, marching in the Donation Day parade in 1964, stumped all guessers. Whoopee! Now John Shugren did guess 1964, but called it the 4th of July Parade and Kenneth Holbrook got 1964 the second time around. The jury is still out on whether the men are entitled to the free lunch at Fred’s Szechaun. Hang in there, a decision will be rendered soon. Now to all the other submitters: Teddy Kell, Betty Berggren, Steve and Charisse Nunnink, Les Worthington, Dot Penaluna, Ta Ta Karen Alling, Harry and Donna Stewart, Roger Sanford, Bill Lewis, Eleanor Crosswhite, Not A Clue, Niel Locke, John Parent and from the Bay Area, Emily P. Searls, great grand-daughter of the Hon. Niles Searls, prominent 19th century jurist and Nevada City pioneer. The Searls family gifted the the Nevada City building on Church Street that today houses the Nevada County Historical Society’s Searls Library.

OK, we now cut to the chase: looking down on what prominent intersection (c. early 1960s) that today looks very little like this photo. Location: either Grass Valley or Nevada City, but definitely not any other location. All answers will receive a personal reply if a person e.mails: bobwyckoff@sbcglobal.net or PO Box 216, Nevada City CA 95959. No food contest this week! And we thank one and all.
