A hat tip to reader Nicole for sending over this old clip — a 1912 vision of Los Angeles that never quite came to pass. Unless, perhaps, one of those train things is an early vision of the Regional Connector. Also, where’s all the parking lots in the artist’s rendering?

Without a doubt, this particular vision for transit in LA & SoCal came to a shaky end March 10th, 1933…. (namely all those steel structures on roof tops)
