1. Granddaddy Walker's building
I'm taking my 3 daughters out to lunch tomorrow on the light rail to see my Granddaddy Walker's building. My father, Howard Walker, told many stories about his Dad. J. W. Walker came to Arizona on horseback with his brother when he was 16 years old. I grew up on NW corner of 20th street and Bethany Home Road in the middle of J.W. Walker's citrus grove which my father was later the owner of. I still have the old roll-top desk that J.W. Walker had in his real estate
