Our Paradise Palms 1963 series is coming to an end soon. Thereâ€™s only one more floor plan brochure, an after this, the August 1963 edition of the Paradise Palms Desert News, thereâ€™s only September left to show you.
I was hoping someone else would surface that had other editions stashed away, but, alas, it hasnâ€™t happened.
Weâ€™ll continue withÂ some more 1960â€™s fun with a new series of photographs from our secret historian. He just delivered a whole cache of 1960â€™sÂ pictures, and weâ€™ll need your help figuring out whereÂ they are.
Todayâ€™s edition of the Paradise Palms Desert News features smuggled art, more hair, a new gas station, and lots of furniture that weâ€™d all love to have now.
My mother used to â€œletâ€ me lick the S & H Green Stamps. Thereâ€™s actually 3 full books of them in a box in her store room. All that licking, and they never got turned in for valuable merchandise.
Anyone know when the â€œflying Aâ€ got torn down?
In the early 70â€™s, the Paradise Palms Community voted to abolish the homeownerâ€™s association. Iâ€™ve been told that itÂ happened both inÂ 73 and 74.
With the HOA defunt, the community park was closed and the land wasÂ re-developed for the last homes to be built in Paradise Palms. ThoseÂ homes are distinctlyÂ different and have theÂ feel of the 70â€™s andÂ 80â€™s. You can find them on the south side of Nakona, just west of Spencer.Â Â
