Bygone Landmarks

At the turn of the century, Pasadena's Busch Gardens were a local wonder. The elaborate 30-acre grounds began as private, but were opened to the public later, and the enthusiasm for them was intense. "In 1915, it was reported that 1,500,000 people had visited the gardens in a single year." [KCET]
