The scion of the Allen house

Walter Kendall of Terre Haute, IN, writes:

“I am writing to tell you that I really enjoyed your article on the house at 355 Lexington Ave. in Stockton. My brother in law who lives in Lodi sent me the article.

“The house belonged to my grandfather, Walter Kendall Sr. who stated Kendall’s Incorporated in 1919. My father, Walter Kendall Jr., was raised in that house. I spent many nights in that house while growing up as a boy in Stockton.

“My grandmother sold the house in the early 1980’s when she moved into Plymouth Square.”

Allen designed the Civic Memorial Auditorium, the Henry Apartments, the Christian Science building, the Municipal Baths, and this fun extravaganza.
