Good Roads

In September 2015 I started a discovery project with an almost 100 year old map of Pasadena. At the time I called it One City One Map

Life intervened, progress was slow, but I pushed slowly forward and now I’m going to be presenting my work to the Huntington Westerners in Pasadena on March 4, 2017. Mostly what I’ve done is look in depth at some of the locations on the old map and compare photos from the 1920’s and the present. For instance:

Ross FieldThe Ross Balloon Field in Arcadia circa 1918 (looking southwest)

There is a slide show which I’ll try to post here in the next few days.
