Linden Avenue

If the avenue on the east end of town doesn’t prove it, this photo certainly does. The Bailard family has called Carpinteria home for a very long time. The name is partly cut off by the photo’s edge, but it appears the shop depicted above was a Bailard-owned general merchandise store at a time when Linden Avenue was an authentic slice of the Wild West.
