Corner of 3rd and Hill Streets, downtown Los Angeles, circa 1890s

Corner of 3rd and Hill Streets, downtown Los Angeles, 1898I don’t have any great desire to have experienced life during the horse-and-buggy days (I suspect the smell must have been less-than-delightful) but seeing photos like this of downtown L.A when it was well developed with genteel Victorian mansions and lots of shady trees – we’re seeing here the corner of 3rd and Hill Streets in the 1890s – it does seem an idyllic time…well, as long as you had a bit of money. But then again, that’s always going to be the case, isn’t it?

The same view in 2016:
