Look at that beautiful 1962 grid. Click and zoom for your neighborhood; mine sure looked a lot prettier then. Via Reddit.

    Not sure what you think all those red lines are if not highways.

  • BradfordPearson

    Less highways may be more accurate, but look at the red lines. Main Street, Commerce Street, Grand Avenue, Lancaster Road, Davis Street, Irving Boulevard, Preston Road. These are not highways.

  • Jerome Weeks

    Yeah, but there’s 75 and over there’s 35E and 45 and Northwest, too.

    You wanna see pretty much NO highways, I’ve got a 1952 map. There’s not much north of Lovers Lane.

    No LBJ Freeway, Dallas North Tollway or I-30 Canyon.

  • Jason Heid

    “Fewer” highways would be even more more accurate, Brad.

    Let’s get a map from the 1700’s, I bet that looks pretty.
