Well, at least my camera did! But I had to leave with it. There was lots of press, but "no private photography allowed". I guess I'll have to make myself some VVV blogPress Credentials.
But while I was on Maria Elena Ct. I grabbed some photos of some of the best Vintage Homes in all of VVV. It's truly a gem of a street. (from Oakey, north on 15th, east on Bracken to the first street which is Maria Elena.
In fact, I'd like to know who all the various streets were named after.
I know Wengert was the last name of one of the founders of Nevada Power a hundred years ago, (I sold his daughter Shirley's downtown house for her and helped her buy in Spanish Oaks) and Lewis and Clark and Fremont are famous names.
But what about Oakey or Charleston, or Maryland or St. Louis or Bracken or Jessica or Griffith, or Franklin. Or on the west side, Mason, Bannie, Alta, or Colanthe, or Cashman and a hundred more. They seem to be named after people. Who knows? Someone must remember.
