LaCook as we affectionately call La Cucaracha. It was indeed our first to go to place for Mexican Food at 7th St and Indian School and even when they moved into the old El Maya Restaurant at 928 E. Indian School. It was a sad day when those wonderful bean burros with the bright red sauce said goodbye to the clientele. I heard the cooks and some of the waitresses opened a new place, about 20th Avenue and Glendale but I sadly never went to dine.

I am so proud and happy to be a Phd AND a neighbor and friend to Brad Hall. He does amazing work to let us in on the Phoenix I personally remember, but some fuzzy little details wandered away from me. Great work, Brad.

We had a great tour, didn't we?.... And as for that First National Bank Building, 411 N. Central, I worked on the 2nd floor 1959-61, and then I worked at Southern AZ Bank when it came to Phoenix from Tucson and opened up shop in the Standard Oil Building. What great memories.

I loved your time travel. I was there...right in the center of it all. I shopped at the old JC Penneys and when they built the new one, and that awesome parking garage, I was there too. It was a grand time, those years.

I love The Ranch, and as you know I live even closer to the area. It is a lovely area to just drive past, let alone wander into the roads leading to the interior grounds. Peacocks, rabbits, cats, roosters and chickens all live there.

bBrown is correct. The name of the "mountain" was not offensive at the time. We have seen many titles disappear over time because they were deemed inappropriate or mis-titled. "Over time " is the key word here.

I remember so well driving toward Tempe, and just before the bridge, on the left, tucked off Mill Ave and Curry Road was the Arizona TB Sanitarium. Nearby was the Alligator Farm. "Perched on a hill and hidden behind bushes just off Curry Road and Mill Avenue in Tempe is a building owned by ASU. It’s known as the former children’s hospital. Initially, the building was a tuberculosis hospital. But, there’s more to the story. Did you know the adjacent parking lot is the exact spot where the original Arizona State Tuberculosis Sanatorium stood for decades — and it’s basement is still there?"

I am old, and I remember the early downtown Phoenix. The downtown that I visited with my mother and grandmother, the downtown that I shopped with high school friends. The sights were part of that in the 50s. It just seems when those first "away from downtown" shopping malls were built, then the migration started and other "things" took precedence on many streets. It was a sad migration but we didn't even realize at the time what it meant in the long run. I miss my old Phoenix, and there will never be an atmosphere like that, even in the biggest of all shopping malls.
