Peak hour at the corner Wilshire Blvd and Western Ave, Los Angeles, 1939

Peak hour at the corner Wilshire Blvd and Western Ave, Los Angeles, 1939The large clock above the doorway of The Owl Drug Co tell us it’s 5 o’clock, and the sign at the Wiltern Theater says that “Return of the Cisco Kid” is playing. So, folks, what we’re seeing is what peak hour traffic looked like one of the busiest corners in Los Angeles—Wilshire Blvd and Western Ave—in 1939. Doesn’t look so busy to my 21st century eyes.
