I went to Wagner Elementary.  I think it was built in the 60's as well.  Anybody know for sure?

Wagner opened in the fall of 1963. I was there.


I remember that well, because I was sitting in Mrs McGee's class on November 22, 1963

That's one of those days you'll never forget where you were when it happened.

I always feel guilty that I don't remember.  However, I was only three.  I do remember where I was during 911.  I was on a plane.

Bob...

Speaking of Beautiful Downtown Burbank...
I was raised there almost ALL of my childhood. Went to Central Elementary (Now called Walt Disney I believe) went to Jordan Jr High and then Burroughs High School. I had so much fun living in that small town atmosphere (which is pretty much gone now) Hung out at Bob's Big Boy in Toluca Lake, The Pickwick Drive-in, Cornell Theater and oh so much more....even saw Sonny and Cher sitting at Orange Julius one day across from NBC...of course I am so sorry now that I TP'D Ronnie Howards house. I wish I had been a little nicer to him...(lol) His family lived on the corner of my girlfriends street and I was always over there so one night we decided to get mischievious.

One thing about living close to the studios is that we were unimpressed by fame. Not to say we didn't enjoy it but we were so used to seeing movie sets, filming etc that it became "part" of living in that down.

El Segundo has the same sort of feeling regarding filiming. There is MUCH filming that goes on here. Oh it's like going back in time for me sometimes.

I didn't realize you lived in Burbank for a while.


Laura and Bob,

That must have been fascinating to live so close to the movie industry (if not inside the community).  I was driving with a friend in LA when there were signs for cast and crews....which were cryptic in meaning.  This friend grew up there also and knew what it meant.  Sure enough we went on a smaller street and there was the cast and crew.  Did that go on when you two were kids growing up?  Amazes me that Hollywood is right there yet we see very little.

"being nicer to (Ron Howard)" LMAO...YEAH!  We'd be able to tune into Laura having a camino  Smiley

We see those signs all the time in El Segundo and near LAX. El Segundo is popular with film companies because it's within 25 miles of the studio and they don't have to pay per diem.

In fact I passed by a filming at Dockweiler Beach on the way to work this morning.

Alli...

Yes I was fortunate and I didn't even know it....hahahaha....

Bill is right we see film crew signs all the time in El Segundo. Plus the company I'm presently working for works with tv shows (production companies) so I'm sort of used to the drama...LOL

We have a beautiful High School in El Segundo that is used on many tv shows as well as the movies.
