Under your souls on 3rd Street in downtown Los Angeles

Jan 14, 2010 by Lisa Newton

If you’re walking on the 3rd Street, on the Grand Central Market side of the street, take a look down at the sidewalk.

Why?

Because you might learn a few new facts about the city you live in.

Here’s what I learned today:

5,000 miles of storm drain channels

“UNDER YOUR SOULS – 5,000 miles of storm drain channels * The distance from LA to NY & back again. Shoveled in the 1920s & 1930s by workers paid a dollar a day.”

38,753 streets

“Under your souls * 38,753 streets * LOS ANGELES COUNTY”

42,803 MILES of POWER and COMMUNICATON CABLES

“under Hill Street Avenida * 42,803 MILES of POWER and COMMUNICATON CABLES

Enough cable to circle Mars 10 times”

Not surprisingly, I love taking walks in downtown LA.

    Great shots and very interesting information. Take a blower vac, or at least a Chinese type fan, next time and blow off the leaf litter before you capture your images. ;)

    @Jim, Thanks for the info, but I actually liked the leaves. It think they give the pictures character.
