“Saw your column re: the Pollardville Chicken and Big Orange. There was a Big Orange structure in the backyard of a home near the intersection of Kasson Rd, 11th St and Banta Rd near Tracy. I checked Google Earth and was diasappointed to find it gone, but I think I found the foundation it sat on. ”
I knew there was a giant orange in Tracy, decades ago when the old highway ran down the city’s main street. If I’d known somebody preserved it, I’d have tracked it down, if it still exists. I still might.
