2012-01-05 15:48:05   In the 1975 Polk Directory,809 Bay Avenue was listed as vacant. In the 1974 Phone Directory, Disco was NOT listed in the yellow pages but was listed in the white pages. Disco was listed in the 1973 Phone Directory in both the white pages and the yellow pages. That is why 1974 is chosen as the end date. The phone book for 1974 (Santa Cruz) was issued in June. —Harlan
