Old Tom Bucklee at the '49er
Acton, California

Oct. 9, 1970: "Old Tom" Bucklee, seen here on his 66th birthday, was a regular coffee-guzzling customer at Darcy's '49er saloon in Acton and lived in a trailer that he parked in the restaurant's parking lot on Crown Valley Road.

Future Santa Clarita Mayor Jo Anne Darcy and her husband Curtis owned and operated the '49er (31908 Crown Valley Road, corner Cory Avenue) from 1968 to 1974 before moving to Saugus.
