one pasadena photo posted every day from the beautiful crown city. join me on my journey!
The highway is fairly old, I think it's been around since the 1930's. That's my high school right next to the power plant, which, if I'm not mistaken, is a historic monument, so it's probably even older.
It's supposed to be there as a scarecrow - to keep people from continuing to move here!
they hide cell phone towers
Cafe, you may be on to something there!Thanks for stopping by, everyone!
Ben---don't know when the power plant was constructed, but if you look at some of the over crossings on the 11, or now the 110 (at least from Pasadena to Dodger Stadium), you'll see dates like 1940, 1938 and at one point, I know there was a 1933 stamped on one of them. That's the ONLY explanation for the 5ft onramps, on a curve, at some entrances!!!I do strongly suspect the plant was there first, otherwise the fwy would not wind around as it does, nor would the railroad tracks wind as they do. As a child I used to REALLY enjoy seeing the fountain lit up at night!
I thought PIO was going to give us a bit more info to fill in the details, but she has not done so yet...
I was going to say, doesn't PIO wander past here once in a while?!?!Probably busy trying to slash budgets to manage what the Governator is going to offer up for a budget this year!ok...was going to end it there....but as I went to post this, the verification word was: reams uhm, how does blogger know?!?! ;-)
