Cecil Houk's Photo's

Some of these are photographs of various friends and relatives that I obtained from the estates of my mother (Helen Houk, January 1908 - July 1997), and brother (Douglas Houk, January 1938 - November 1997). Others are those that I have taken over the years.

First let me show you where I live now in San Diego, CA. This photo was taken in late 1969.

 The house was located here: You can zoom out on this map and get a better idea of the location. The loop is the driveway for the view point that is there now. In 1947 there was an orchard at that location. The house was on the north side of HWY 20; just a few yards west of Riggs Hill Road.
