Photo: Diane Edwardson, May 26, 2012. Lion's Ear (Leonotis neptifolia) seems to have taken over the Corralitas side of the entrance to Red Car Canyon. (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.
