Abalone submarine detectors

The Kitchen Brothers
were, perhaps, ahead of their time.
You can still see their houses at 1211 Fair Avenue
and 519 Fair Avenue
in Santa Cruz, California. Kenneth was a bricklayer, Raymond was a mason, and both had a ...unique... style. Would you believe that they tried to detect Japanese submarines off the coast of California in World War II with their abalone-encrusted obelisks? Would you believe that the Navy actually listened to them?
But perhaps you have heard of the Kitchen Sisters
on NPR. Their name is inspired by the Kitchen Brothers
