Sorry, I was refering to the 1912 road map you posted. We lived in Sunland and Tujunga. At least till I was 8. Then we moved to Harbor City. My dad worked in Hawthorne, and the drive was just too far from Tujunga, even in the mid 60s.

Remember the coolest building in LA ?...the Pan Pacific Auditorium was built in a hurry out of plywood,a fireman's disaster waiting to happen.

My Mom saw Elvis here and I remember going every year to the Outdoor show where us kids would catch live fish in a pool they had sat up.

Located off Beverly Blvd just east of TVC(CBS)

Our family used to go to the Outdoor show there, too. Remember the lumberjack show they had outside?

These are all from the 1969 flood...I had just joined the Navy and had not reported for duty yet....We had 122 inches of rain if 4 weeks of rain.

The bottom picture is of Carnelian and Vineyard. The end house is gone and the last 4 garages are gone.

Thomas Bros is on the corner of Vineyard and Foothill...The damage was caused when the giant wine barrels were pushed out the from of the building and ended up on Arrow highway

The second picture down is looking from Redhill east on Foothill...As you can see it was real sparse back then...Just me and about 200 relatives and 3400 others in the entire Etiwanda, Alta Loma Cucamonga Area.

The only freeway back then was the 10.

This is what it looks like now about 1/2 mile frrom the ranch entrance in the 1st pic
These are all shots of the Sansevain property, later known as Hunter's Ridge in north Fontana. Although the address is listed as 14804 Summit Ave, the streets were realigned several years ago and the ranch entrance was near what is now Wilson St, jusr west of I-15. All of these shots are from Library of Congress' Historic American Buildings Survey. The pics are undated, but this is what the area looked like when we went pheasant hunting up there in the late 60s/early 70s.

edit: I flubbed the address on the caption of the 1st pic. It should be 14804 Summit Ave.

I think I just spilchuked my repharse all over the desk.

Anybody got any old South Bay pics? I probably have some, but I didn't realize how "beautiful" the area was when I lived there so long ago, so we mostly have pictures of our cul de sac.

I was going to post an image, but it's so large, I've had second thoughts. To make things fair, I'm sending it via U.S. Mail to you, RFC. It should arrive at your house in about a week. I figure that will be faster than you downloading it. Always thinking of you.

You should move to one of these master planned communities. They have everything conveniently located, good infrastructure like cable & DSL - they even have oversight boards called homeowners associations that help keep the place looking neat & tidy. Very nice places with good property values.

I am going to ask my Mom if she still has an old black and white pic' from long ago. It was an overhead shot of the Harbor City area around Narbonne High School before the high school was built. The students went door to door selling these pictures to help fund the construction for the new high school. It was mostly open land, and Western was a dinky two lane road.

I'll have to match up that hog ranch view of the Jurupas with the way it looks today, see how close that place was. This place was built in 1943.

I'm pretty sure this is a shot of the old park and lake that used to be south of the Inland Center Mall.
Artesian wells in San Bernardino. There were so many of them, they were considered a major nuisance and most of them were capped. many of the capped artesian wells were never mapped and that created major problems when the south end of the city saw a building boom in the 70s and 80s. One I remember in particular was the post office on E St below Orange Show Rd. The building was one of the first projects in the area and constantly had a few feet of water in the basement despite pumps that ran 24/7.

San Bernardino's artesian wells were the source of water that supplied the Gage Canal which made citrus farming possible in Riverside.

Is anyone else interested in old waterworks? I've got a bunch of pics of the Gage Canal and also the Bear Creek system that delivered water from Big Bear to Redlands. Bear Creek was quite the undertaking with lots of small dams and tunnels. It was also a neat spot to explore and enjoy the many pools and flumes. I'll post a few if anyone is interested.
