Speaking of the Angels, L.A. had it's own Wrigley Field (@ 42nd Pl & Avalon) which was their home for many years when they were part of the Pacific Coast League, and for one year when they joined the American League. If you ever saw the old "Home Run Derby" show, it was filmed there.

Wrigley Field in LA was modeled after Wrigley Field in Chicago and was built by William Wrigley who owned the Cubs.

The Cubs used to train on Catalina Island, also owned by Wrigley.

In 1961, a pal and I attended a Yankee/Angel game at this park. The Yanks were leading 4-2 going into the bottom of the 9th, so we headed to the exit.

A few minutes after we got outside, a tremendous roar came from the park. "Daddy Wags" (Leon Wagner) had hit a grand slam homer...final score 6-4 = Angels.

This was the last baseball game I left before the final out was made.

Looking East down Telegraph Rd @ Passons Blvd in what's now Pico Rivera.....when this pic was taken in 1952 it was just Rivera.

There's now a Jim's Burgers on the spot where this pic was taken...it's exactly 1 block South of where I grew up.

It isn't, it was taken recently.

Today, most of the movie palaces that line Broadway in downtown LA are being used for other purposes.

The Los Angeles marque on this theater was added in the 1930's.

Accident pic: There's one 1938/39 Ford truck that won't be restored.

How many of the vehicles can y'all date as to their year and make?

I think there's a Chevy (50/51?) right behind the mashed up truck, and a Buick of around the same vintage behind that...and is that a '50 Ford Tudor behind the guys standing around the crate?

1 out of 3 and I'll be happy

Steve..these three cars are:

A 1950 Chrysler Windsor Club Coupe behind the crate, a 1950/52 Pontiac behind the mashed up Ford truck.

To the right of the Pontiac in the pic is a 1948 Chevy, and...

Parked across the street facing in the other direction is a 1950/51 Studebaker Starlight Coupe.

btw: CBS TV is located where Gilmore Field once stood (3rd & Beverly).

Bruce (Bdox) and I must be around the same age if he was a small fry in 1948. The Big Dummy's DOB: 9/9/1944.

Wow, that's a cool overlay showing the old roadbed snaking across the Interstate. Also shows how much earth was moved to straighten it out.

I traveled the old (not the old-old version) ridgeroute many times, but I was too young to remember much now. My parents familys (both sides) lived, and they married in the central valley, and I was born in the valley. I was an infant when work opportunities brought us to LA, and my young family burned up that road going "home" to lean on the comfort of their parents. I only have vague memories.
