Description

Photograph caption dated June 14, 1947 reads, "Extension of the Hollywood freeway along Ventura boulevard to Vineland avenue started with the thunder of air-hammers at Universal City, as the last cars to use the intersection of Lankershim and Ventura boulevard whizzed by in back of the workmen. A detour soon will go around the intersection."
