My family moved to China Lake in 1946, shortly before my 3rd birthday. We lived there for just over 6 years. My father was an optical physicist working at Michelson Lab (once it opened), and was head of the optics section before we left. I recently returned to China Lake (stayed in Ridgecrest) as a counselor on a two-month assignment working with children. I took many pictures of the desert area (Little Lake, Red Rock Canyon, views of Sierra ridges and Owens Peak), and wrote a couple of pieces for a little blog I have. I just finished writing a short book about our years in China Lake (mostly about my parents). Many of my memories are fuzzy, since I was pretty young, but I did some research (including things my parents wrote) to fill in. I'm still tweaking it. I had an older sister, Signe Wallin, who passed away at age 35. My brother, Peter Wallin, is still living.

To John Carricart:
In the early 60's I lived on Bonita Street and where it ended at its northernmost point was Searles Street and at its southernmost point was Carricart - if my memory serves me correctly.
Checkout the following document. Our house in Wherry was featured on the page entitled "WHERRY".

Have posted before, researching my grandfather, John Carricart, first caretaker at Junction Ranch, 1943-1945.
There was at one time, a street named for him, it is presently called Bonita Street and connects the ends of Sahara and Oasis Dr. before apparently turning into Kashmir Lane
Obviously the Carricart street signs were taken down.
This is a -long- shot, but I would love to buy one if anyone knows where one might exist. More than likely they were either thrown out or recycled. But maybe, just maybe, someone grabbed them. Might they be sitting on a shelf in someone's garage? Or in a local store?
