Pacific Electric streetcars nos. 704 and 685 pass over a steel viaduct near Rio Vista on the Van Nuys Line. The image dates to May 19, 1947.

    This view is to the east along the LA river.

    The first bridge is indeed the PE bridge and the second one behind the PE

    bridge is Vineland Avenue.

    I’m wondering if the third bridge, below Vineland Avenue is Lankershim

    Boulevard?

    I also noticed the concrete river channel has yet to be constructed.
