Photograph caption dated February 20, 1959 reads "Carl Stezenzel, 10, of North Hollywood, tries to cross Ventura boulevard at Radford avenue in nine seconds alloted by signal. From left, he starts just as 'Don't Walk' signal changes to 'Walk,' doesn't make it across when signal changes against him. Studio City attorney Jerry Wrisley complained to City Council that signal is only good for 'sprinters.' Council is studying matter."; See images #00140554 through #00140556 for all photos in this series.
