Man, that makes me tear up. Paradise! Can you imagine living in SoCal back in the early 1900s? I interviewed one of the remaining WWI vets a few years back, lives in SD if he's still alive. He grew up in Lynwood, around this time. Said it was all farmland back then. Can you imagine seeing that much change in your lifetime?

As you said, life was good -- it still is. But wow, I wonder what folks thought about this view then. John Wayne grew up in glendale. apropos to nothing, his name was Marion.
