Sherman Way and Mason Avenue looking east, 1938. The Los Angeles River Flood in 1938 was one the worst floods in Southern California history. When the Big Tujunga Wash levee broke, seventy-seven of its spreading basins were destroyed, telephone and electrical power were shut down, and bridges all over the Valley were washed out.

Los Angeles - Griffith Observatory. The view of LA at sunset is breathtaking and the museum is interactive and up-to-date with the best space-science has to offer. If you want to see the planetarium you must also plan ahead to reserve tickets. Free to the public and open late, the observatory is an LA evening must.
