I thought Mulholland Drive was further down the freeway near the Hollywood Hills? The exit sign is Silver Lake Blvd.

We're referencing the photo in the URL I posted of the Caheunga Pass.

Also, and I could be mistaken, but there appears to be a man standing in the middle there? White shirt, black pants. The more I look, the more I see. The Mercury woody wagon, first in line in the passing lane facing the camera, is worth a bundle nowadays, about $60k at least.

And the freeway hasn't been expanded by even one lane since that time. Just incredible.

How can a supposedly "great city" allow its transportation system to become so degraded and paralyzed over the decades? I think it's shameful.

The Same can be said with every City / State outside the Northeast. We kept most our Network and the abandoned Rail / LRT sections should all be restored by 2030. (Forming a European style network outside the Bos-Wash Corridor and an Asian Style system inside the Bos-wash Corridor.) But what Cali has done is pretty hard to reverse. But Cali has taught the Nation that you can't keep expanding freeways , that doesn't solve the Traffic Problem. Sprawl has also killed your Transit Networks and much of your state. Corruption and Greed also had there hands in this , with the whole GM streetcar scandal. But by 2035 i think California should have a Medium to Large Japanese Style statewide Rail / Transit Network. I think people are finally realizing that building more Highways doesn't work. Once the ball starts rolling , it rarely stops..........You need to get Republicans and Democrats on the same page on the issue. Here in the Northeast thats easily , every party is for more Rail / Transit and Smart Highways

The more things change, the more they remain the same.

That's a very sobering photo, Fontucky Do you think that the Red streetcars were still being used during the time that photo was taken?

Some of the lines were still in operation by PUC mandate, but the end (1961) was swiftly approaching.
