Palm trees at Golden Eagle Shopping Center June 9, 2012

Have you noticed the palm trees recently planted by the new owners of the Golden Eagle Shopping Center on East Washington Street? Believe it or not palms were once used as street trees in Petaluma as can be seen in this Sonoma County Library photo taken in 1926.

Who knows maybe it won't be long before we see a palm or two planted at the depot site on Lakeville Street.

I just noticed the new palm trees while driving across town yesterday! Thanks for sharing the lovely old photos. Good to see our downtown area further beautified!
