Any guess what year? The newest vehicle I can see is a 1954 Chevy.

Haha...no kidding but if you think it is bad here, you'd love AZ!

Oddly enough, far right lane was often the fastest moving lane....go figure!

I wonder if people will look at a freeway photo from this generation and think "wow.. every car looks the same."

Nanny government enacted CAFE. The car makers split their efforts into making econoboxes and making light trucks and SUVs.

Nanny government should have left well enough alone - people like big cars. Take them away they switch to trucks (including SUVs, and vans).

And that pertains to this very cool pic,,,how? Why not say it's a very cool pic of a time gone by and leave it at that?

And yes, it seems to be about '54 or so.

In this pic, what is the purpose of the little structure in the middle?

Not sure. Too small to be a construction office. Could be a small structure to house a pump or something as it looks like there is a gully there with drainage conduits, perhaps under construction. The photographer would be standing about where the bridge is that is the eastern end of Mulholland Drive. I'm pretty sure those roads on the left side are Woodrow Wilson and Cahuenga.
