  1. Awesome picture! What year?

    Shows that Western—like Eastern, i’m sure—belonged to bicyclists way before motorists!!

  2. There’s no date on the card but it looks to be pre-1900. It’s so hard to imagine much of Los Angeles looked like this not that long ago.

  3. These fires keep happening and Los Angeles is going to look like that again in a couple of years.
