In doing a little historic research on our area, check out this Sanborn map of our neighborhood in 1927.
Beverlywood Street used to be Emmalee Street;
25th Street was Henry Butt Avenue;
24th Street was Kelson Avenue;
and it looks like Sherbourne (just North of Cadillac) used to be Kalamazoo.
Note that south of Cattaraugus was considered Culver City back then.
Now, Robertson Blvd. wasn’t always called Robertson. In a 1924 real estate ad (I’ll post later). it was called Preuss Rd (Arnaz). Go figure.
