Real estate agent Matthew Greenberg of Los Angeles has found dozens of old maps in a house about to b destroyed and has donated them to the Los Angeles Public Library.
"Stashed everywhere in the 948-square-foot tear-down were maps. Tens of thousands of maps. Fold-out street maps were stuffed in file cabinets, crammed into cardboard boxes, lined up on closet shelves and jammed into old dairy crates. Wall-size roll-up maps once familiar to schoolchildren were stacked in corners. Old globes were lined in rows atop bookshelves also filled with maps and atlases."
I thought the same thing: One Eyed Willy. Right? It has got to be in there somewhere. Quick, somebody give the LA Public Library equivalent of Chunk the map under glass so we do not have to bother opening it.
But seriously, if there's not one treasure hunt waiting in that house, then someone's not doing their job. Never say die.
