The most excellent Outside Lands just published a few hundred very awesome SF Assessors photos from 1951, complete with a handy map. “A local historian… saved them from being discarded in the early 1980s.” (Let’s hear it for local historians.)

UPDATE: Thanks for listening everyone! The archive of this week’s show is now up.
