'Q' is for Quarry - Palos Verdes Peninsula - Aerial Views (3)


Chandler's sand and gravel quarry on the northern side of PV.
"First operational in the '30s, Chandler's has been infilling the quarry since the '70s. It is now the center of a redevelopment project to turn the quarry and adjacent country club into 112 single family homes, a new golf course, and a new clubhouse."

Nice aerial shot of the old quarry. I like golf too, but agree with Marie-Noyale.

That's some aerial view. Looks like an alien landscape to me, we are so green here.

The V shaped garden apartment in the lower center of the pictures must be a relic of the 60's. Bet it has some kind of tropical name in boomerang typeface atop a backdrop of mosaic tile.

That's a wonderful quilt of an image, Miss Tash.
