ANSWER: It's the Hyperion Ave. Bridge that swoops down over Riverside Drive and the section of it shown in the photo is near its eastern end where it intersects with Glendale Blvd. out in the Atwater district.

Declared Historic-Cultural Monument #164 by the City of Los Angeles in 1976.
KNOW YOUR CITY, NO.140 -- These things keep getting easier and easier. Surely you recognize this scene. It isn't a Answer, even if it does have the same name. See? Even if it is easy, we keep giving it away. What is it? See Page 28, Part ll.
