Corralitas Drive: Circa 1948

Photo: Smith Family Archive, circa 1948.  Thanks to the Smith family, who built their house atop Corralitas Drive in 1938 for creating a record of our neighborhood's hillside development. (Click on photo to enlarge.)

If you're looking for a landmark, Rose Scharlin Co-op Nursery School is on Lake View Ave (obscured by the Eucalyptus trees), behind and below the youngest member of the Smith family. Then, as now, people valued trees near their homes.  Unfortunately, it makes it more challenging to match photos.

Rose Scharlin's Conditional Use Permit to operate a school in the middle of a residential zone, will be on the agenda at the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council Governing Board, tomorrow.
