Looking Back: What were your parents or grandparents up to on October 2, 1930?
Excerpt from the October 2, 1930 issue of the Paso Robles Spotlight
From simpler times when keeping up with the comings and goings of our neighbors was news it was informative to know that Mr. and Mrs. Robert Shaw moved from Shandon to Junction Oil Station.
Floyd Mee made the Union News when he fell into a window and cut his arm to the bone. The doctor had to put in five clamps.
Mr. And Mrs. Merle Tuley and son of Paso Robles spent Sunday evening at the Estrella home of the J.T. Tuleys.
A large crowd attended the dance at the Bee Rock Hall.
John and Percy Harlan motored from Parkfield to Paso Robles Thursday.
Along with keeping up with what your neighbors were up to, Paso Robles Bottle Works would deliver ice directly to your ice box, you could buy tires for as little as $6.30 and you could get your chicken breeding stock, plus “free Chick News” from Russell Poultry Yards in Van Nuys.

This “Looking Back” view at Paso Robles history comes from one of the hundreds of local newspapers in the Paso Robles Area Historical Society collection. Several local newspapers, dating from the 1800s, have reported on local, national and world events, providing priceless historical views of our community that are not available from any other source. The Historical Society is seeking community support for the multi-phased Newspaper Preservation Project to help fund the transfer of these aged and fragile pages to microfilm and digital images. See the society website for more information about becoming a member or donating to any phase of this project.
The Paso Robles Daily News is pleased to support this important project. Watch this space for future “Looking Back” articles.
