State Street Viaduct


State Street Bridge - 1933

Photograph of a view looking west on Ramona Boulevard right of way, before street existed, from the State Street Bridge, November 30, 1933. Four trees stand in a bunch on the left with a dusty, grass-speckled yard behind them. Pieces of machinery stand in the yard behind the trees with a shallow trench dug out on the right. What appear to be railroad cars ride along the tracks of a dusty road which curves from the far right in the foreground to the center background. Electrical poles stand along the left side of the road while an overpass stands above it in the background (CHS-44595)
