Looking at the map, I could see that I had walked right above the wall along the Pullman stairway, and driven past the driveway that led to the wall. The problem was I was looking over it, and didn’t realize what I thought was a private driveway, actually led to an alleyway that was originally the 400 block of Pullman Street before 1960. The key to finding the wall, is going up the driveway that shoots off from the 400 block of Terrill Avenue, between Monterey Road and Bushnell Way, in beautiful Hermon, California 90042.
