1990 Anonymous - Palo Alto
Interesting pictorial bird's-eye-view of Palo Alto
Anonymous (presumably the Chamber of Commerce)
Palo Alto (?), ca. 1990
76 x 53 cm (30 x 21 in)
A block by block glimpse of Palo Alto when smaller town culture was pervasive. The view captures a facet of life and business as it was, focusing on small businesses and restaurants, many which no longer exist or reflect what is already an earlier era. Our favorite is Colossal Graphics Incorporated - "We sell software that prints your DTP files big!"
Part of Stanford University is also shown.
Wear along the top edge and minor vertical cracking.
