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.
