Today we spent the morning on a Downtown Downey Walking Tour led by George Redfox. What a fun morning.
I felt I learned several new things about our town. We wandered down streets I have walked many times before, but saw things I had never noticed. Or, George pointed out the historical significance, which made me look at them differently.
Being able to see the original buildings (or streets) really brought home how much our community has changed over the years. This 1940s sign told visitors to Downey that we were the "ideal community".
