Daily Photo Tour - The Red Car Trolley in Hollywood Land
Now that the 1920s have taken over DCA, it seems only fitting to have the Red Car Trolley escorting passengers from Buena Vista Street to Hollywood Land. It was during the 1920s in Los Angeles that the Red Cars reached their peak in popularity. Unfortunately the need for such transportation quickly died off as the demand for automobiles increased. Now, with the many freeways and traffic to accompany it, railways are making a comeback. I can't help but feel a sense of irony and urge to consider how commonplace this is in everyday life. Perhaps we're better suited taking a moment to value something before rushing off to replace it.
