Thanks, glad you like it. I didn't realize that what's now Riverside Drive was Figureroa back then. Today, it's an odd street over the river that makes a weird curve. That bridge and road across the river would have dumped you off right at Figueroa under the configuration you see in the 1930s picture; it now makes complete sense to me. I also like the look of the LA River and the Arroyo Seco; both have a lot of vegetation in them, still pretty wild.

Love the gas station pictures, thanks.
