Bunker Hill Downtown Los Angeles

Nestled up on a hill just northwest of Downtown Los Angeles, Bunker Hill used to be bustling residential area of  beautiful victorian houses. However, by mid-century the dilapidated structures were razed to make way for the development of larger commercial building. Now, the district lying around Grand between 1st St. and 5th St. is essentially a lost neighborhood with only historic photographs left to remind us of what used to be there. The recently discover prints seen above from photographer George Mann, give us a vivid depiction of Bunker Hill’s architecturally impressive history. [BlogDowntown]
