|The Conkling's Man pulls out a
drawer, Florence Rozelle waves half-heartedly
to Howard, and Florence's brother -- home on
leave from the Army -- stops traffic on
Chalcedony St in this 1943 photo. That's
Fanuel Street on the right, looking north.
Florence lived in this house for 62 years,
moving to Modesto in 2008 to be near her son.
Howard Rozelle passed away in 1995.
My father drove a route for
Mrs. Conkling's bakery in the early to mid
1950s. I have a menu from them that lists
all the items available for the month of
June, probably from around 1956. They would
deliver ordered items to your door and also
sell out of the truck like an ice cream
vendor does. Some of the prices are Apple
Pie -- 60 cents, jelly donuts -- 6 for 38
cents, 6.5 inch Devil's Food cake -- 85
cents. They were located at 3277 El Cajon
Blvd. That is next to where the 805 passes
now -- Frank Trousdale 1964
