In response to our last blog feature, the one about the Fremont Car Barn and the rest, an old friend and officer in these trenches, archivist Ernie Dornfield, answered our question regarding what was the use of those ghost-colored solid forms in the otherwise vacant lot between the house on the left of the subject and the car barn beyond both? Here’s Ernie’s letter plus a “grab” from this computer’s screen of a City Archive photograph that shows one of those “gray things” being installed. If you follow his advice and access the city clerk’s information service you will find many more and even much more beyond gray concretions.

I lived on 36th and 1st NW. We took the trolley every day to and from West Woodland School. There was no such thing as Jay walking because to catch the trolley you had to walk into the middle of the street. I grew up in Fremont till I was in the 9th grade. I remember some of the stores.
