COLFAX AVE - LOOKING NORTH FROM 7802 COLFAX - A BEAUTIFUL CITY STREET - TAKEN OCT 11 1968 ON A VISIT - A JOHN CHUCKMAN PHOTO

HOW BEAUTIFULLY MAINTAINED WERE THE SHRUBS AND GRASS AROUND MOST OF THOSE OLD BUILDINGS, ALL THE WORK OF A CLASS OF HARD-WORKING RESIDENT JANITORS.

THE MANICURED COURTYARDS AND BOULEVARDS CONTRASTED SO NICELY WITH THE EXUBERANT GROWTH OF OVERHANGING TREES AND OCCASIONAL LARGE SHRUBS, AS YOU CAN SEE IN THIS PICTURE.

IT WAS A SPIRIT-LIFTING URBAN LANDSCAPE.
