A residential strip demolished to build the 405 Freeway. This 1957 view is to the south. The two streets paralleling the demolition zone are Cotner on the left and Beloit on the right. The first foreground cross-street is Ohio, and the diagonal street two blocks south is a remarkably quiet Santa Monica Boulevard. The big white, two-story building at the lower left is Verizon today. It is painfully obvious from this picture how freeways permanently divide neighborhoods.
