Almost forty years AFTER the guidebook was published

David Allen published a story in the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin in which he talked with Charles Phoenix, author of Cruising the Pomona Valley: 1930 Thru 1970. Where did they meet? Vince's Spaghetti, of course (which, if you don't know, was established during that 1930-1970 period).

I encourage you to read the entire article, but I did want to highlight this part:

Graber Olive House is hosting Phoenix on Saturday - 1 to 3 p.m. at 315 E. 4th St., Ontario - to sign its stash of 60 copies, which will be for sale.

Once those are gone, that's probably it, Phoenix says. He's unlikely to reprint the book.

As we left Vince's, however, we learned that the spaghetti house still has 15 copies for sale. If only some of our lost landmarks had proved so hardy.
