Eureka's Old JC Penny and the Cherry Blossom Pastry Shop

Please click to enlarge and see the billboard trashcan and other great details. Traffic is kinda heavy (and 2 way) and downtown seems booming. It is also fun to recognize so many of the buildings–not much has changed in the last 60+ years. 8 more words
