Older homes, apartments, and businesses (foreground) contrast greatly with the shiny office buildings of downtown Los Angeles. This view, taken on January 23, 1982, is seen from the Hollywood Freeway, just south of Glendale Boulevard. The photograph was also used for article dated March 10, 1985; the caption reads, "Mayor Bradley cites downtown boom as his major feat, but critics say redevelopment funds would have been better spent for low-and moderate-income housing."
