North of 9th Avenue, west of Lashley, south of Mountain View, east of railroad tracks
Most, if not all, of the houses in this neighborhood are what are called Trend homes. They were manufactured in the building that is now the YMCA, I believe in either the late 1970′s or early 1980′s. It appears to me there are maybe 5 or 6 different models of these houses. I believe they all originally had vertical siding boards rather than the more typical horizontal.
This is a license plate from Hall County in Nebraska, where Grand Island is located. The first digit(s) on a Nebraska license plate tell what county it is from. Originally they were numbered sequentially in order of population, so Omaha plates started with 1, Lincoln started with 2, and so on. Minden, where I grew up, was in the bottom half population-wise … 52 out of the 93 counties.
I believe the most populated counties no longer follow the numbering scheme — I think they were getting too many cars to be able to smoothly follow the old system.
I walked the Spring Gulch trail as part of today’s trip. I had never walked this part before, and I was surprised by how much undeveloped tree area is in the back of the houses on the west side of the sub-division. I also like the sidewalk pathways through the area. I think they’re there to make it easier for the children in the area to walk to the schools east of Lashley.
Saw a couple of ‘tree people’. Although they live just a few blocks apart, I don’t believe they’ve ever met.
These dogs were real yippers, but they were so cute I didn’t mind.
