Wow it all looks so different! All the little sapling trees.
Wondering if anyone on this blog remembers what Bayswater Avenue looked like in the early 60's with the large Canary Palms planted in a median in the center of the street. Does anyone have a photo of that?

Jennifer Pfaff

Yes, I do, but it is very poor newspaper quality photo, unfortunately. Somebody who spent his whole life as a resident on the block made a short movie of the trees coming down, very sad. But it, too, is pretty poor quality. As you probably know, it was not long thereafter when people started complaining about all the speeding cars on the (newly widened) block. All the unintended consequences few thought about.
