Los Angeles River: Fletcher Bridge * Hyperion Bridge

Print: Paul Landacre, "Three Kids and a Horse," 1943, features the Hyperion Bridge crossing the LA River.

While you're checking out the new LA River Bike Path under the Hyperion Bridge, take a moment to think about Paul Landacre's landscape of the river. Landacre was a Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract Resident until his death in 1963. His cabin is a historic landmark.

*Correction July 1, 2010: I've been meaning to update this post for quite some time. The original post stated this was the Fletcher Bridge. The Fletcher Bridge does not have the curved arches like the Hyperion Bridge. I apologize for any confusion this caused.
