Remarks & Notes 
A Little Los Angeles History Hangs On. Making its final descent into Los Angeles, Metrolink 753 drops off the northern end of the Redondo Flyover as it passes Amtrak's locomotive maintenance facility at Redondo Junction. Besides carrying trains over the LA River, the Redondo Flyover allows trains traversing this busy route to also pass above Washington Boulevard, which also crosses the river via a five span T girder bridge at this location pictured in the foreground. Built in 1931, the 89-year-old Washington Boulevard bridge has seen many changes take place around it but has remained an important piece of the infrastructure carrying decades of traffic. Located at each of the four corners of the bridge stand a pylon, with each wearing a unique terra cotta image (on all four sides of the pylon) of the people who worked so hard to build the span. While the hundreds of people who cross the Washington Boulevard bridge today likely pay little to no attention to these special images, I thought it was worth framing one of the pylons in at least one shot while shooting here this morning.
