Wildartist, the same kind of suburbanization happened in Southern California over approximately the same timespan. Hundreds of thousands of acres of citrus groves were cut down, bulldozed into huge piles, and burned to make way for endless slurbs, to be filled with emigrees from the socialized industrial northeast, whose daddies had taken note of the mild weather on their way to/from WWII. In short order, we went from easygoing agricultural backwater to smoggy industrial powerhouse, until the PTB decided that Japan and Germany, no, wait, China!, should make all the tchotchkes we must have to be truly “with it.” Now, it’s just smoggy and crowded, which is why I’m not there any more.

Cry, "Treason!"
