Pasadena's first gardening maintenance company, demonstrating overkill.
The gardening maintenance company sent to clear our Petrea's tomato crop.No, give me another chance. Clearing the area for the Gamble House?
I'm going a whole different direction. I say Cal Tech is expanding.
thats just painful
I agree with pasadenaadjacent. Brings a tear to my eye. I'm guessing the stump of the 210 freeway replaced that cute house and a bunch of others like it.
All the previous comments are incorrect. This picture was taken in 1969. It looks like they are getting ready to tear down the house but actually it is the beginning of ground clearing for one of the few archaeological projects in Pasadena, Professor Frank H.H. Roberts of the Smithsonian Institution is standing to the left overseeing the initial removal of what is called "overburden" or the soil that has built up over a prehistoric site. In this case it was the extremely controversial excavation of the Blönduós House, originally a sod structure over a wooden frame and is of Icelandic or Norse origin. Next to it was the soil stained imprint of a wood Viking ship that had long since decayed. According to some scientists it is the only known example of Viking occupation in Southern California. They also found remnants of stone and bronze tools. Critics argued that it was a hoax, but many claim otherwise. But I could be wrong.
It's the Mayor's residence on Congress. They're taking out a tree (that fell during the '71 Sylmar quake?).
Ok, isn't it enuf that the city went after some of our shady trees on Colorado Blvd?!In fact that looks like one Pasadena's progressive houses!
We're in Pasadena, and the owner of the house is about to wake up to a nasty surprise.
