Description
City traffic manager Lloyd Braff, seen here at a Van Nuys Chamber of Commerce meeting, discussed the problem of there being too many automobiles and not enough roads in the San Fernando Valley. He pointed out that in a 24-hour period, 66,000 cars use Ventura Boulevard where traffic is heaviest, in the east, and that 22,000 cars use it where traffic is lightest, in the West Valley. Photograph dated April 17, 1957.
