Re: To The Top.
This is why I used SAs until Mama objected. To me, everyone south of our border with MX are SAs. The people in Elmhurst in the area by the Elks Club were from all over the map - from south of the border with MX when I worked there. The vets I worked with were mostly from Peru. Rojas was, if I remember right, from El Salvador. That whole area around the Elks club down to Grand Ave and to Northern Blvd were a mix of people from CA and SA. That was back in the mid to late 1970s. As the whites fled the onslaught business dropped off and most of us were let go. These new immigrants didn't keep pets. Who or what lives there today I wouldn't know. I could see they were Hispanics on that last visit but no way to know where they came from.
