Sunday Drive: Currey

On the back of this snapshot of Harold D. Currey and his son Junior standing alongside their Chevrolet* is written "Near Suncrest 1925".
[From the Currey photograph album in my private collection.]

Suncrest was merged with its neighbor La Cresta in the 1960s to become Crest. Here's a 1938 Union Tribune story about the place.
