  1. There was a rowboat tied up to the redwoods at the corner of SFD Blvd. and Laurel Avenue for Granton Park, but I remember KFD guys giving us rides into home in motorboats and carrying us up to the house after we got called out of school at Kent…sometimes a couple of times a year! Seemed like fun, as a kid…not so much anymore.

  2. Peter Martinelli – I’m sure somewhere there is video of that in a TV warehouse somewhere but as if right now that’s all KRON and KPIX have digitized and put up in the public archive. They were kind to let me use a few of their clips for MN to help promote their collection. Hopefully they will put more of their archives out to the public in the future.
