suburban development 1906
this picture is from the MTA website. the contrast of the weedy dirt track that would develop into a dense urban area. this is the build it and they will come attitude, i assume. the nearest thing i can think of to this in the present day is the outer highway ring they've just finished in Denver & San Antonio, and other western cities where they put in an expensive off-ramp that leaves you off by empty lots and a small, windy country road. p0rnst0rm is pro-development. the global population is growing exponentially, don't forget.
