Lucky Baldwin was one of the great characters of Southern California history during the late 19th century and early 20th century. He was a pioneer and real estate tycoon who owned the land that would become Arcadia, Monrovia, and Baldwin Hills.

Huell visits the Queen Anne Cottage at the Los Angeles Arboretum, which was built on his former property in 1885, and is now on the National Register of Historic Places.

Galco's

Huell first met John Nese -- aka the "King of Pop" -- back in 2000 when he did a program about the 250-plus vintage soda pops he sold in the store. In this special update, we'll discover that the store's inventory of vintage sodas has not only doubled in size, but now also includes classic candy bars. The real joy of the story, however, is finding out how his family has changed and grown since the first visit.
