Reference 1: Baist 1921. Plate 3

Reference 2: 1902 Reuger, 1894 Sanborn

Reference 3: 1928 Hill

Notes: Routing at eastern end changed with 101 freeway or even earlier. In 1921 ends at Aliso / Brooklyn Intersection. But the block near Brooklyn is labeled Bridge. 1908 Hamlin had Macy continuing east of Pleasant, but 1908 Wood as Brooklyn. Doesn't see to be much agreement on what the Macy St / Pleasant intersection looked like

If no map shows up when you choose a map, the map may not cover that region, so try another map. May need to select something in the right column first before the upper right box. A little buggy yet.
