Is this Brand and Mountain? there is still an island in the middle of Brand here.
Yes it is. There’s a staircase that goes down
into the middle of that island. I’m not sure what it’s there for. Might be something left over from the P.E. days.
it is (or was) a rest room for PE motormen and bus drivers for MCL, LAMTA, SCRTD,and anyone with the correct key.
Those were the days for comfortable, clean and convenient public transportation as the picture depicts the neat and nice neighborhood near this station.
