So I came upon this interesting image in the archives of the Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation. Included in their archive of "mid-century ephemera" is this home builder's brochure for homes in a neighborhood designated as Catalina Village. The homes were listed at $34,500! And what on earth is that tagline all about - "in the dust-free thermal area." Huh?
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
