My Memories of Westside Church of Christ

The earliest recollection of my childhood in Los Angeles
was the earthquake in '32 (?) living at the time at
1444 W. 37th Street, lower level of a two story
home. Vaguely, recall the Church of Christ using
our living room and dining room for Sunday services.
Shortly thereafter we moved a couple of houses down
the block. The Sasaki family of 4 or 5 lived upstairs.
Shortly thereafter the Ishiguro's moved in. Father was
the preacher. His wife and one son moved in upstairs.
They also had a Japanese school there where Mrs. Masato who lived across the street was teaching. Have lost all track of these people. Would be interesting to see the results of your History Project!

Couple of names here I don't see on your list who probably attended the church are: Masato's, Shigekuni's (had a nursery), the Kawaguchi's, a classmate of mine.

Sounds like an interesting project, what a job! I'll be looking forward to your completed project.
