Before and after: reconstruction of the Sunset Boulevard overpass at Glendale Boulevard, 1934.

Part of the California Historical Society Collection in the USC Digital Library.

Two views of the intersection of Ramona Blvd. and Mission Rd. in Los Angeles. The top photo was taken on this day in 1933. The bottom photo, taken April 15, 1935, shows the intersection after it was widened and repaved. The intersection no longer exists; Ramona Blvd. has since been replaced by the Interstate 10 freeway.

These two views, taken from the same location but separated by roughly 26 years, depict the dramatic growth Los Angeles experienced in the early twentieth century.

Both photographs show the East Hollywood/Los Feliz area and were taken from Mount Olive, today the site of the Barnsdall Art Park and the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Hollyhock House. The eastern end of the Hollywood Hills appears in the background.
