yikes! look at all that traffic with nary a stop sign nor semaphore in site!
Good lord, Jansen, these photos you find! Those WONDERFUL old houses on Sunset, especially the Victorian. Both have those long steep stairs that are so emblamatic of old Los Angeles. And that photo of the street and houses in the 20's. If only there was some way to go back in time and spend endless hours staring at these fascinating and atmospheric bldgs. and streets. Thanks.
