Aerial View of Fortuna ca 1948

A brand new subdivision is being prepared directly across from the High School (middle right) on 12th Street. This would be the present-day blocks of I and J Streets and from 9th to 12th Streets. This picture also shows the gas depot across the railroad tracks from the Auction Yard (on the left). The Rodeo Grounds in Rohner Park still sports the racetrack. The bowling alley hadn't been built yet, and there was little development on Fortuna Boulevard - it was out in the country among the cows!
