Intersection of Wilshire and Santa Monica Boulevards show traffic demonstration, 1924

 Intersection of Wilshire and Santa Monica Boulevards show traffic demonstration, 1924This photo from the BHHS shows us the intersection of Wilshire and Santa Monica Boulevards in 1924. It’s choked with vehicles because local drivers were staging a demonstration intended to goad the city to installing traffic lights. Evidently it was a much-traveled crossroads even back then, which surprises me given how empty the surrounding land is. I’m glad the protest worked—I don’t even want to imagine negotiation my through that without traffic lights!
