26th Street - Los Angeles River Bridge
Posted January 24, 2008, by David Kimbrough (kimbrough-photo [at] charter [dot] net)

In this photo you can see two bridges. The lower one is the 26th Street bridge which is surprisingly narrow for bridge that services a heavily industrialized area. The upper one is very new for commuter trains crossing over the river and is now separated from the older railroad bridge for freight trains. The top of the city hall of Los Angeles is visible to the right and Mt. Hollywood to the left. Western gulls can be seen in the riverbed and trees are growing out of the concrete lined walls.
