Pages of History: Orange Market opens its doors

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate, December 1939.

The finest fruits and produce the market affords at lowest prices is the policy of the new Crescent City Orange Market opening in the Kendall Market building at 351  Second  St. in the center of the business district, with Sam Matolo as manager.

The extremely low prices quoted are made possible by the fact that the fruits and produce are purchased direct from growers, and trucked direct to the market. Prices for the opening sale are amazing and will undoubtedly attract hundreds of shoppers.

Destroyer visits harbor

Evidently assigned to patrol duty along this part of the Pacific Coast, the U.S.S. destroyer Gamble put into Crescent City harbor for an overnight stay. The Gamble had been cruising offshore for several days prior to the visit, according to fishermen, but there was no information available as to the purpose of the maneuver.

Leaving this port, the Gamble proceeded to Humboldt Bay where she remained only a few hours, again heading out to sea.
