More interesting 20's and 30's photos

LA's blogdowntown has an article on pneumatic plague outbreak in LA in 1924, and includes some neat photos of the back streets of LA during that time. If you need some ideas about what the wrong side of the tracks looked like in California in the 1920's and 1930's, check them out.

My favorites was a shot of SP's Central Station from a nearby street, and another of houses in Chinatown hanging off a hillside with some frightening bracing holding them up.

I've got a Classic Miniatures mining cabin kit somewhere around here; I ought to try to build it to imitate one of the houses in these photos.
