Today in Photographs: February 16, 1943
Cahuenga Pass, before the freeway. Note landscaping and railroad tracks. The picture brings to mind Raymond Chandler's famous road revelry in The Little Sister, that begins with Philip Marlowe recalling: "I drove east on Sunset but I didn't go home. At La Brea I turned north and swung over to Highland, out over Cahuenga Pass and down on to Ventura Boulevard, past Studio City and Sherman Oaks and Encino. There was nothing lonely about the trip. There never is on that road."
