Corner Wilshire Blvd and Vermont Ave, 1932

Corner Wilshire Blvd and Vermont Ave, 1932From the looks of this photo, if you were driving down Wilshire Blvd in 1932 and came to the Vermont Avenue intersection, you’d have to negotiate your way across without the assistance of traffic lights. I wouldn’t have thought that would be too difficult until I came across this shot, which shows us that traffic is heavier than I’d have thought.

What this intersection looks like now (photo take March 2015.) Can you imagine trying to negotiate it without traffic lights?!

    Well, things are continuously interesting for the folks waiting at the bus stop, that’s for sure. Love the street lamps and the buildings in the background. Wonder what they were?

    Even with all this confusion, I’ll take how this intersection looked over how it looks today. Amazing changes. Not always for the best.

    Thank you for all your wonderful pics! Jean
