Our First Home - 1951

We arrived in California about two weeks after our June 1st wedding in Milwaukee. We had only $45, but I had a job. At Aerojet in Azusa. They made rocket engines. Who knew anything about rockets in 1951? I didn't.

We rented a small place, fomerly a guest house, in an avocado grove nestled amid golden rolling hills near Puente. We loved it. I began to learn about rockets.
