Running for the Interurban These bronze statues were just unveiled in Fremont celebrating JP Patches and Gertrude's local TV show which aired starting 50 years ago. The following photos are an assortment of shots – with a special surprise for the last photo! Hope you enjoy these and perhaps they will bring back some memories if you are Patches Pal ! Cordell
There were four of us standing and photographing the statues when this fellow pulls up in his shiny Corvette, rolls down the window and says “Isn’t that some statue!”.. You could not possibly miss the voice, even when the face (without makeup) didn’t ring a bell. He chatted with us for several minutes and said how amazed he was that people did this for him and Chris (JP). I superimposed the statue into this photo – see the likeness? Me neither! I asked and received permission to take his photo – what a great guy!
