Upper Boggy Creek Before Us

[Click photo to enlarge]

WPD environmental scientist Staryn Wagner sifted through old photos and found this cool aerial shot from the 1940s of how the Upper Boggy Creek and surrounding area looked before the neighborhood was built. He then carefully overlaid the current street grid, for perspective.

All the old timers in the neighborhood say that this area used to be a big dairy farm. They are faint, but you can cattle trails (the cattle and deer were making trails before we were!).

Neat perspective.
