The reason that the Lake Sawyer Road looks so stark and bright in 1936, is that it had just recently been constructed (circa 1933 according to my records). Areas where the road looks wider would have likely been either "cut" or "fill" areas where native sand and gravels would have been excavated or used for fill to level out natural changes in topography. Though just slightly off both aerial, S.E. 312th Street which forms the southern boundary of the Lake Sawyer Area was constructed circa 1938.
