LA’s Oldest Street

on July 4, 2014

 

Scan 6This beautiful card comes from Igor in the USA and shows Avila Adobe, Los Angeles’s oldest street. He tells me that the city itself was founded in 1781 by the Spanish colonists and later became the Mexican capital of Alta before it became LA in 1847. Fascinating and so interesting to see some of the older American architecture which is so often overlooked in favour of the big, bright modern buildings. Thanks Igor!
