Empty Highways in Los Angeles? Really?

Color postcard circa 1950 of the Hollywood Freeway

Another blast from the past from a historic Los Angeles photos fan.  This postcard of the Hollywood Freeway looking toward downtown Los Angeles (that tall building is City Hall ala Dragnet — dumm da dum dummm) is circa 1950, a time when cars were large and smoky and the freeways flowed even in the middle of the day.  This view is dwarfed today by the large buildings that create a corridor at this location and, of course, traffic moves along bumper-to-bumper.  We often get caught in traffic while on a private luxury tour around Los Angeles and take the time to point the camera out the window for a “different” view of our surroundings.
