Here's pictorial proof of construction activity on the Cahuenga Pass section of Hollywood Freeway at 9:15 a.m. Four workmen (circles) are rushing to complete the link, the most notorious of bottlenecks in all the freeway system. This is the kind of slowdown which motorists and city officials are screaming about. Photographer who took this picture said, If I had shot a cannon, I probably wouldn't have hit anyone! (Note: there are five workmen on site. Look between the last two circles on this photo.) Photo dated: February 3, 1954.
