Find the golf course, the open rectangle near center right.And one more event during Young’s youth in the Pacific Northwest, was the Klondike Gold Rush. After seeing the undeveloped bit of scrub land, Young hurried back to his Indianapolis office with sketches he had made for the city plan.At right is the engineer’s drawing of the beginning of Hollywood’s city plan, made from Young’s sketches, according to several who were close to Young in 1920.Mickelson looks west (where the tracks are), with his back to the east.This photo, taken in May, 1921, was published in the August, 1922 Below is the same site just three years later, looking to the east from the railroad tracks down the Boulevard now lined with stores.

This aerial from April 1924 by Clyde Elliott shows what Young’s engineers were working with.
First, here is where Young had his surveyors begin to lay out his city.
This is my father, Tony Mickelson, head of Young’s surveying party, standing in the underbrush where Young planned that his wide boulevard would cross the Dixie Highway and the FEC railroad tracks.
