Were you in Menlo Park or Atherton in 1967? Then Polk’s has you!

Dave Waters posted this on the Facebook group, Do You Remember the (old Menlo Park). For those of us of a certain era, it’s a real jaunt down memory lane. Note: In somewhat of a quirk, children are listed separately from parents.

Wrote Dave: “Here’s a link to a 1967 Polk’s edition. These are fun to go through, for many reasons. Of particular interest is the reverse lookup.  Going up Santa Cruz Avenue, for instance, you can see every little business listed. I bet, like me, many you have forgotten! You can also run up the residential streets and spot some forgotten neighbor names.

“Make sure you use the links at the bottom of the page to check out other stuff. There’s a ton of related material (e.g.; there are Hillview School yearbooks). What an amazing collection of fun!”

Thank you, Linda, for the article with the Polk’s link. I found my family’s entry on Hillview Dr. I grew up in Menlo (I’m 58 yrs), went to Hillview and Woodside, then UCLA. Ended up settling here in Southern California. Your name sounds familiar — maybe we crossed paths.

Anyway, thanks again!
