Glenn Alessi, who was born and raised in Wickenburg, still has family here and spends the Christmas season here every year, visiting from his home in Italy. He maintains an excellent Facebook group called Way Out Wickenburg Way, where he and other current and past Wickenburg residents share old photos and stories about life in Wickenburg.
Glenn and his brother put together this photo slide show of images they shot while in high school in the 1970s. He gave me permission to share it here. If you’ve been living in Wickenburg for a while, you might find this interesting.
I’m hoping Glenn will take the time one of these days to share some of his stories and photos on this site. If you’d like to see more of Glenn’s work, please comment on this post to let him know.
Thanks again, Glenn, for letting me share this.
