I don't know how many of you are Olmsted fans... Even if you aren't, you might really enjoy the access to their archival gems....

Granted, with such a huge body of work and files, it's hard to navigate. But I've found a particularly effective way to do so:

I start here, by finding projects on the map. (You might be surprised with how many Olmsted projects are near you):
http://www.olmstedonline.org/Job/ExploreMap?jobName=&location=&jobNumber=&jobType=
Zoom in and scroll around on the map, and click the green dots to be given the project number.

Then use this link to find your project:
https://www.flickr.com/photos/olmsted_archives/albums/page1
(NOTE: It's much faster to manually change the page number in the URL then to scroll through dozens of pages to get to your project)

I'm particularly fond of the presentation drawings/plans, and the works-in-progress photography.... Hope some of you enjoy this as much as I do.

Thanks, Jay. The local PBS station recently re-ran a documentary on the Olmstead story. Heart-warming is the saga of the work, and the long-lived and salutary results of that work . . .
