Aviation History of the Miracle Mile

Aerial view of Rogers Airport, 1920

Aerial view of the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue, showing Rogers Airport, 1920. The towers of oil siphons fill the expanse of cleared land above the intersection of the two roads. A few striped display tents have been pitched in the clearing below them. There is a possibility that the road on the lower right corner is what eventually became Olympic. The diagonal dirt road above it is what became San Vicente blvd. The road that goes from left to right midway up the photo is Wilshire, and the one that intersects it Fairfax, which at that time may still have been called Crescent Avenue. (USC Digital Library.)
