I did a series of posts two years ago for the 70th anniversary of the Arroyo Seco Parkway. You can find them here.

    Love that car! A Buick maybe? And the photo is so sharp and clear. Must have been taken with a 4×5 Speed Graphic stopped down to get lots of depth of field. Great stuff. And there’s “825” written in pencil on the negative. When I worked in the “morgue” (library) at the El Lay Ex in the 1950s we’d write short captions on the margins of the 4×5 inch negatives so we could identify the scene in case an editor wanted to use it later. Try that on a 35mm film frame! I wonder if 825 means the date 8/25.
