ANSWER: This is the nice little bridge that carries Franklin Ave. in 3800 block out Los Feliz way. What it carries Franklin Ave. over is not much more than a weedy little gulch. But it's handy.
Declared Historic-Cultural Monument #126 by the City of Los Angeles in 1974.
KNOW YOUR CITY, NO.148 -- Now here's one that is going to throw a lot of people. Of course, it's a bridge. But what bridge? And where? Even with the fancy cupolas, it really isn't a very important bridge. Except to people who cross it. See Page 7, Part ll.
