1. February 27, 1902: John Steinbeck was born in Salinas, California.

    In tribute to his wonderful (if bleak) book The Grapes of Wrath, as well as the current drought troubles in California, here’s an irrigation map of Central California in 1922.

    Map: Irrigation map of central California/ U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Bureau of Public Roads, Irrigation Investigations. [S.l.]: The Bureau, 1922.
