🚚Before the gourmet food trucks it was all about the lunch stands back in time. 25 cents bought you an order of chili, a roast beef sandwich and a Pepsi.

In recognition for #internationalwomensday we have a special post about an incredible woman by the name of Josephine Serrano Collier whom was the first latina in the #LAPD. 🙋🏻🚔 ----------------------⬇️----------------
Collier was born on March 14,1922 in Arizona. Her family brought her to California where they settled into the Lincoln Heights area. 🏠 ------------------------------------------🙌🏼Collier applied for one of the LAPD’s early groups of female recruits on the advice of a friend. Out of 200 women who applied, Collier became one of only nine hired. She officially became an LAPD officer on Oct. 1, 1946 at the age of 24. 👍🏼 -------------------⬇️--------------------- She passed away at age 91 in 2014. Her commitment opened the door for many women and Latinas in the Department, setting the stage for future generations. 👊🏼 -------------------------------------------- Picture Credit: @latimesphotos @latimes

Who has driven through these tunnels? ✋🏼 ----History⤵️--
The tunnels weren't always part of the state freeway system. Built between 1930 and 1936 by the city of Los Angeles, they originally carried Figueroa Street through the rugged terrain of Elysian Park. Two lanes traveled in either direction, separated by white double stripes. Pedestrians were welcome... 😳

Downtown LA in 1939.

I often drive on Spring and wonder about the history of the businesses that no longer are there that once were. Same goes for San Pedro Street...🤔😲🌆 -------------------------------------------- #teamhdtla #mycity #dtla #downtownla #downtownlosangeles #ourcity #la #losangeles #cityofangels #welovela #ilovela #socal #losangelescity #historicla #lahistory #historicdtla #treasuresofla #lastreets #streetsofla #instapic #vintagephotos #seedtla #oldiebutgoodie #DTLATimes #intheheartofthecity #tbt

Little Tokyo! How I walk you so much lately...🚶🏼🚶🏽‍♀️ View of Weller Street in Little Tokyo looking toward City Hall.

Weller Street is now Astronaut Ellison S. Onizuka Street next to Weller Court, you know that colored lit walkway that's popular! Who would've thought!? 🏫🚀

🙃View of Spring Street looking south from 6th Street. Pedestrians are crossing the street and walking on the sidewalk. A man in what appears to be a uniform is riding a bicycle and cars are parked along both sides of the street. The Hotel Grant is seen in the center of the photo. A beautiful 5-lamp streetlight stands on the corner... 🚏

Iconic DTLA // 35mm B&W

Been to Court lately in DTLA? Well back in 1891 this was the Courthouse you'd have to go to 🙃🏛 ------------------------------------------
It was the old Los Angeles County Courthouse, also as known as the Red Sandstone Courthouse. It was constructed from 1888-1891, and served as the courthouse until 10 Mar 1933, when it sustained considerable damage in the Long Beach earthquake. It was demolished in 1936 🚧
I also posted a different picture entirely posts below of an upclose view. 👀

Less than 4 months away for reopening ⏳🤗 #Angelsflight -----------------🚠🚋🚠---------
Angels Flight™ Railway is one of Los Angeles' most enduring landmarks. Constructed and opened in 1901, it carried passengers up and down the steep slope between downtown and the top of Bunker Hill, then a residential district.

It is scheduled to reopen on Labor Day! •

So many signs and buildings that still stand as of today 😍.But this is 1938 in our beloved #DTLA.
What else happened in that year?👇🏼📰 ---------------------------------------------
Severe flooding claimed 78 lives and caused almost $25 million in damage. 😧🌫💧The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers began channeling the Los Angeles River with concrete.
