Aerial view of Westlake Park features a dotted line showing where Wilshire Blvd. will extend over the lake. The Westlake Theater can be seen at the top left, and the Elks clubhouse and Asbury apartments to the bottom left. The caption reads, "Preparations were being made today to resume work to extend Wilshire Boulevard through Westlake Park following a ruling by the state supreme court which set aside a Los Angeles superior court restraining order that halted work a year ago. The high court ruled that the city has the right to make a change in the use of land donated to it without restrictions. Photo shows Westlake park, the dotted line indicating the route Wilshire Boulevard will take. Arrow points out place that had been cleared away when work was halted a year ago. The boulevard will cross the park and join the present western section of the street near the Elks clubhouse, shown in left foreground. Kopec photo taken from Goodyear blimp piloted by Lieut. Art Sewell." Photo dated: March 30, 1934.
