Location #9

This location is near the corner of El Camino Real and Cypress Ave. at the very north end of town just south of the freeway junction. The original 15 ft. wide concrete alignment can be seen here as it make a small loop on the west side of the current ECR. According to Loren Signorotti, there was an old Shell station here in the 1920's which is now the front part of his house. That Shell station was owned at the time by Dennis Signorotti. Also Loren was told that the original alignment made a rather sharp "S" curve at this spot, and was the cause of many accidents in the early years.
