Mapping away

I haven't gotten around to discussing this route66voice post yet. It's entitled "Old Map of Pomona."

If you go to the post and click on the map image, you can see that it includes some recognizable roads (Holt, Indian Hill, Garey, Foothill), but that the map is dominated by the Butterfield Stage Route and the Old L.A. and San Bernardino Stage Road/Jurupa Road.

Years ago I was in the Upland Library and saw a slightly later map of the Ontario-Upland area, but it was still created before the west-east freeways cut across the city of Ontario, back when routes 60, 66, and 91 were still U.S. routes rather than state routes.

Fascinating stuff.
