Westlake Park...before Wilshire split it in half and before the war that made a hero of a certain Army general that would eventually become its new namesake.

jesus, great photos!...and to think that this area used to be a dry (water-deprived), dusty, desert town a little more than a 100 years ago. Now it's a world-class metropolis whose influence reaches the far corners of the globe!
