Pre-Olmstead Plans for Madrona Woods

Thanks to Jennie Grant for sending me this 1905 map that shows 38th Ave, 39th Ave, and Marion St all cutting directly across what is now Madrona Woods. Plus there is an alley between 38th and 39th. Building these roads would have taken a lot of construction! I think we can probably all agree we’re glad this plan was never implemented.
