  • David, that's a clarinet case belonging to the freshman girl whose back is facing the camera shot. She is Donna Edwards, former sheriff Don Edwards youngest daughter. She would have been in the same freshmen class as TG employee, Sissy Smith. I know that this photo would had to be dated before 1978, because I graduated in 77 and was a band member.

  • This picture had to be made after March of 1977. That is me on the first register on the left side of the picture. I worked there after school & week-ends. I was 16 at the time. My name was Cindy Burgess then. It was a fun place to work. Lots of muscle cars filled the lot on the week-end.

  • I just talked to Kristi Terceira and she is the young lady facing forward in the picture. Next to her is Mark Brandon and June Brandon with her back to everyone.

    I loved eating at this place. The best hamburgers!!!! Thanks David for another great pic.

  • Bugforever, you are correct. That is Kristi (Orr) Terceira, Mark Brandon and his sister June. I was in band with Kristi and June.
