This profile of the Wawona at the Gas Works – before the park – is neither dated nor attributed. It comes from a mixed collection of slides recorded by Lawton Gowey and Robert Bradley. Slowly I am sorting them out – but not this one yet. I see that the green paint is in poor shape, but I also note that it was green at the end. There are enough Wallingford landmarks or features in this to most likely date is close – after some reference work. Nice sky. I seem to remember the Wawona being here ca. 1970 when Stan James was doing some carpentry on its Captain’s quarters.
