That is so great! I can totally understand why Pres. Roosevelt might himself insist on seeing Palm Drive while in L.A., though, because back in that time, it truly was considered to be one of the prime attractions of Los Angeles. Palm Drive was world famous in its day!

What really amazes me is that Roosevelt would publicize his itinerary like this. His predecessor as President was assassinated for doing just that – being too specific about where he would be, and when. You'd think he'd have better sense than to tempt fate like that. Then again, T.R. had already survived San Juan Hill! He really need not fear a stately drive though old Los Angeles. ^^
