Linden Avenue of 1918

The Linden Avenue of 1918 is a far cry from the Linden Avenue of 2019. Instead of the hustle and bustle of tourists and locals driving, bicycling and walking from here to there, we see a lone auto in the distance with a horse nearby. Instead of shops and restaurants rubbing elbows from Carpinteria Avenue to 6th Street, we see a gappy string of homes and businesses fed by weedy sidewalks and a dirt road. The Palms hotel, however, was up and running, blocked from view in this photo by the young trees along the sidewalk that now stand over 100 feet tall.
