From the Palisades, 1912 & 2014

The image below is from the Santa Monica Public Library Digital Collection, showing driving along the Palisades in 1912. I am in LA for meetings and had the opportunity to drive along the Pacific Coast Highway & the Palisades yesterday. I thought the old postcard matched up in an interesting way with my present day photo. The postcard shows what probably is the California Incline.

 The incline is structurally deficient is due for replacement and reconstruction.
