Petworth 1903

Check out this awesome map of Petworth at the turn of last century. Thanks to Susan for sending it. Any predictions of what Petworth will look like in 2053?

Very cool. We had to go to the Plat office to get the permit for building our bakcyard fence a few months back, and the historic maps in there were really cool. There was a surveyor's map of my block that was nearly 100 years old and included hand-written notes just as old indicating it cost something like $10 for the construction company to survey the block in 1915.
