Thanks to Richmond resident Michael Smith, a very nice hand-written letter from Vivian Goodwin exists.This three page document provides a fascinating glimpse into the not too far distant past. I think Woody might have a copy. If not, I would be glad to provide one. I remember when her husband used to fish alongside me on the Pipeline. He would clamber around the barbed wire and then run along those narrow girders to get to the end of the pier. I believe her son, Don, worked with David Warren at the Camera Obscura. I am very sorry to hear of her passing, I was really hoping one of our local historians would interview her. Perhaps they have.
