Photo: Alissa Walker via The Big Parade's Twitter feed, May 19, 2012. Sight of the deforested (and now a big dig) Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract was devastating to hikers on Saturday's Big Parade. (Click on photo to enlarge.)
The Corralitas Red Car Property was a private right-of-way through Silver Lake (Los Angeles) for the Pacific Electric interurban streetcar. The “Big Red Cars” ran until 1955 when the Glendale Line was decommissioned for freeway construction. For more than 30 years, a series of developers tried and failed to develop the Corralitas Red Car Property.
