Man, that old postcard of the golf course now looks like some sort of surreal AI-generated image.

And that reality wasn't even all that long ago in the grand scheme.

Amazing.

LSE was a massive improvement over the gold course, and previous to that the IC railyards.

Crazy the amount of change that has happened in that spot since WW2. That crazy 90 degree curve on LSE was definitely something as well! :haha:
