If you haven’t taken a gander at Jessica Hall and Joe Linton’s L.A. Creek Freak blog, it is a must-read for anyone with even the slightest inkling of interest in Los Angeles history and its topographic environment.
A recent post by Jane Tsong reminds us of the vast meadow that was replaced by the development of Highland Park in the 1880’s.
