Automobiles driving through flooded intersection in L.A. - 1950

TOUGH GOING--This intersection of Sepulveda Blvd. and Slauson Ave. yesterday offers a typical scene of what motorists in Los Angeles had to contend with as they went about their work. The rain started before dawn and was fairly general throughout the Southland. The storm was welcomed especially by citrus growers. Publication: Los Angeles Times Publication date: November 14, 1950

Ah! This is killing me, knowing most of these cars have been crushed or are rotting some place in a feild! I love that Dodge on the far right, just driving into the water.

When I was a kid in the 50's it was not unusual for 30's coupes and roadsters to drive by. This was a typical street scene (except for the water) in my neighbor hood. I used to see a '32 Ford Vicky almost everyday. Those cars wore out and people couldn't wait to get their new '58 Impala or Fairlane. It's just how it was.
