Enough Said

Yep, no Tuesday evening column. A pause. Try this.

Ground Transportation (40 images) – Angels Flight, the narrow-gauge funicular railway from 1901, climbs from Hill Street to the big glass skyscrapers up on Bunker Hill. But it’s still long ago down on Hill Street. There’s the train station from 1925, Subway Terminal, once the main station of the Pacific Electric Railway, with connections to everywhere, designed by the New York firm Schultze and Weaver, an Italian Renaissance Revival giant with amazing arches. But no trains. It’s luxury condos now, and they all face the 1913 Hotel Clark across the street. The architect, Harrison Albright, had fun with that. Downtown Los Angeles was a bustling place long ago too.

About Alan

The editor is a former systems manager for a large California-based HMO, and a former senior systems manager for Northrop, Hughes-Raytheon, Computer Sciences Corporation, Perot Systems and other such organizations. One position was managing the financial and payroll systems for a large hospital chain. And somewhere in there was a two-year stint in Canada running the systems shop at a General Motors locomotive factory - in London, Ontario. That explains Canadian matters scattered through these pages. Otherwise, think large-scale HR, payroll, financial and manufacturing systems. A résumé is available if you wish. The editor has a graduate degree in Eighteenth-Century British Literature from Duke University where he was a National Woodrow Wilson Fellow, and taught English and music in upstate New York in the seventies, and then in the early eighties moved to California and left teaching. The editor currently resides in Hollywood California, a block north of the Sunset Strip.
