Opened 1956 / Closed: 1976

A special thank you to Dr. Joseph E. Scherger of La Quinta, California for contributing these old news clippings after I contacted him in May, 2013. Dr. Joseph Scherger is a nephew to Dr. Frank Scherger who practiced in La Puente from 1956 - 1976.

Glancing over these photographs taken in 1976 and published in both the Highlander and the San Gabriel Valley Tribune bring back so many memories. Dr. Curtis Sauer delivered me in 1957 at Lark Ellen Hospital in West Covina (which is no longer there). And both remained our doctors through their closing.

The picture of the waiting room, with the pictures on the wall and those wooden chairs are just as I remember them to even the one picture of the doctors chatting with the sign-in window shutters in the background. The only thing missing was that medicinal aroma that always filled the air in the waiting room lobby when I had to go there when I was a kid. Hope you enjoy the photographs - If you have any photo's please email us at LA PUENTE DAYS
