THIS 1947 AERIAL STARTED OUT to be a Rozelle Mystery photo t. About 15 minutes after I posted it last Wednesday Bob Richardson emailed the news that it was Panorama Drive, north of Adams Avenue, in Normal Heights -- or is it City Heights -- wait, it could be University Heights. The homes haven't changed much, but -- fasten your seat belts -- that's the intersection of Highway 80 and Texas Street in Mission Valley at the upper left.
