On the postcard is the peculiar statement, "Having a high old time in San Jose, Cal. with the Native Sons & Daughters." A small adventurous bear waves from the summit of the tower.

A recent tidbit of information, from a dependable source, indicates that several of the carbon arc lamps, and a portion of the reflecting shield, are buried underneath one of the monster houses on the 1000 block of Camino Pablo in Willow Glen.

My source, who wishes to remain anonymous, adds, "I would relish knowing that greedy, money-grubbing, pseudo-archeologists might dig up the backyard of that ugly, slab-sided monstrosity now looming large over the Camino Pablo landscape."
