Los Angeles 1954

From Facebook correspondent Alicia Huntley comes this portrayal of America's largest city (in square miles) in a more innocent time, if that can be imagined. One is shocked to see freeways that are wide open, with streetcars, even Model A Fords still on the streets. We see both a bustling downtown and the first shopping malls, as well as a Ford and Chevrolet Factory, and it all looks so clean.

At least from this distance.
