The City of Cypress turns 52

On this day, in 1956, the community of Cypress voted to incorporate as a city. The measure passed by 217 to 73. Although it was initially named Dairy City, that name didn't last long.
Today's first photo (top) shows Hall's Grocery on Walker St (near N. Vonnie Ln,) in Cypress in the 1950s. The second photo was taken at roughly the same time and shows N. Danny St in Cypress.
Sorry I haven't been updating much this week. Things are a little busy here, but should get back to something resembling normal soon. I hope.
