AN INCREDIBLE shot of the I-10 (Santa Monica Freeway) during construction in the early 60s — before the big web was connected.
The 10 cut into long-seated ethnic communities fanning out toward the Pacific, built dividing lines that Angelenos still observe today — even if they believe that they don’t. There is a preception about what lies “south of the 10” — Real Estate tells us so.
Great piece on the KCET blog that addresses L.A.’s connecting the city’s history via the freeway on this “Carmageddon” weekend.
