I have always been intrigued by the abandoned stairways along the old portion of the Arroyo Seco Parkway (110) near a couple of the tunnels.
Does anyone have old photos of them when they were in use?

A small note on the Salvation Army: I never had a very high opinion of them. They always struck me as a little nutty, with bad uniforms and lousy music.
However, the wife told me that when she was a little girl in Taiwan (early 1960's) a particularly nasty typhoon came along and wiped them out. Since they
lived on a small farm, they were REALLY wiped out. Anyway, the Salvation Army set up a sort of soup kitchen, where they would feed anyone who came
along. She had no idea who they were back then; just a bunch of white guys with big noses. As a result, she always drops a few bucks in their kettle at
Christmas whenever she passes by. So, they have at least one fan.
