Fletcher Viaduct, 1928

Photo: Los Angeles City Engineering Notebook V. 28-209, 1928. Fletcher Viaduct from the corner of Glendale Blvd. and Fletcher Drive. Currently, Astro Restaurant would be in the lot behind the car on the right; the 76 Station and a church on the left; Riverside Drive and the 5 Freeway would be beyond the viaduct. (Click on photo to enlarge.)

The Pacific Electric Fletcher Viaduct's center section was replaced with steel to accommodate the paving of Fletcher Drive in 1927.
