A Little Pocket of Charm

Angel’s Flight, a charming tiny tramway near the heart of Los Angeles, recently reopened after a hiatus of several years. Looking back on a day when children played in neighborhoods lined with gingerbread houses—when every morning was summer vacation—here’s a book written to memorialize Bunker Hill back when Angel’s Flight closed the first time, in the 1960s.

Many of these illustrations will get richer when you click on them to have a look at the details painted into them by an artist who loved a neighborhood he knew was on the brink of vanishing forever.
