I love history. There, I’ve said it. As if you didn’t know.
Only days before the 2013 Latino Heritage Parade & jamaica.
In my most logical parts of my mind I’m focused on how to share a fuller, different historical picture.
So that this map of 1930 Pasadena is re-seen through a different filter…
and becomes this.
Elder Dave Ruiz shared that is where, “mostly Mexicans lived”.
Another reality is that there is always tons to do before Parade & jamaica day.
Things pop up, even with the 50-100 volunteers that make the event possible.
So the following is never far from my heart.
So thankful for all who have helped us make the magic happen for the last 15 years.
Not sure where to give attribution for all the images, but I lay no claim to them.
