The corner of Linden and Carpinteria avenues was once the go-to spot for a new harness and shoes for one’s primary mode of transportation.

The corner of Linden and Carpinteria avenues was once the go-to spot for a new harness and shoes for one’s primary mode of transportation. Coast Road, now Carpinteria Avenue, led travelers up and down the coastline, where, to the west, Summerland offered Spiritualist meetings. A turn north onto Linden Avenue would connect travelers to Casitas Road and its access to the rest of Southern California.
