Santa Monica History

While we were in Canberra at the end of 2008, we heard the song about Santa Monica Blvd.  That made us wonder how many folks in Canberra knew that Santa Monica Blvd., used to be named Oregon Ave.?

The name was changed (according to this web page

in 1912.

There is an Oregon Ave. in Bekeley, CA, too.
