Front porch days

In conjunction with my print column today, which has more details about Walter and Cordelia Knott’s pre-Berry Farm days in Pomona, here’s a note from Patricia Smithen Adams. It concerns the Knotts’ residence from 1911 to 1913 at 1040 W. Fourth St. of that city:

“My grandparents were friends of Walter and Cordelia and lived on West Second Street. They would visit on the front porch at that home. My uncle still lives there. I was just a small child but I remember stories about the Knott family. I was in the class of 1956, Pomona High.”

Thanks, Patricia.

    The administration invited Walter Knott to appear and speak at a student assembly at Claremont High School c. 1962, which he did indeed do. Attendance was mandatory.
