Description
Photograph article dated March 21, 1963 partially reads, "We took a sentimental journey today, my auto and I. We drove Sepulveda Blvd. from Sherman Oaks, over the hills to West Los Angeles to see how it has been affected by the new stretch of the San Diego Freeway, now three months old. It was empty. Good old Sepulveda Blvd. has never looked more inviting. Or more lonely." Photograph caption reads, "Great, gaping, lonely tunnel - Freeway has emptied once-jammed Sepulveda."
