- This is a bird's-eye view from the top of the Court Hill, above the Hill St. Tunnel, looking down Hill St. towards 1st St. The tunnel was one of several built in the early twentieth century in order to connect LA's historic Downtown to the suburbs in the west through the palisade of hills separating them. At the foreground of the image, we can see park benches placed strategically for people to enjoy the view. We see streetcar tracks emerging out of the tunnels blending into the busy streets in the background. To the left, we can see the board to a Hotel La Crosse, and to the right, there are two boards, with the signs, "Starting Sat. Mar. 24 Charles Chaplin" and, "Mar. 26 Kolb & Dill Now and Then" partly obscured by a pole. The negative is slightly damaged at the top center.
