Streetcar on Third Street west of Hill Street, Los Angeles, circa 1900s

Streetcar on Third Street west of Hill Street, Los Angeles, circa 1900s.jpgI think of this as a companion photo of the one I posted a couple of days ago of the corner of Third and Hill Streets in downtown Los Angeles. In this one, Third Street now had one of those new-fangled streetcars and the Third Street tunnel was now open (it opened in March 1901), which was probably a godsend for the locals, who no longer had to climb Bunker Hill. Can you imagine what that must have been like for that woman in the foreground? Long dress, girdle and the California heat.

    Bless you my friend for sharing this Angels Flight post. It represents so much of old L.A. to me even though I do sympathize with the lady shown. Love you and Bob always, Lou & Marlon.
