for quite awile i've looked at this photograph from time to time. it finally registered within me what it was that i am looking at.

this is taken in 1948 looking south at the begining of the construction of the 101 hollywood/harbor freeway interchange.

on the far right of the photograph is the rochester facing temple, and on the left are the homes on the east side of court circle about to be demolished to make way for the harbor freeway.

if you look closely you can see the outline of court circle curving in the center of the photograph

1970 aerial looking south east across the interchange.

the north side of court circle still exists, rochester house is visible on figueroa just west of the harbor freeway
