EVENT INFO: The LAVA Sunday Salon and walk are free with RSVP from lavatransforms.org/event/salon717/

Come take a time travel trip to old Los Angeles as Gordon Pattison presents an illustrated talk about the development of the lost downtown neighborhoods of Bunker Hill and Crown Hill, with a focus on the short-lived Second Street Cable Car, which ran from Spring Street to Diamond (now Beverly) from 1885-89. Then we’ll take a walk along the start of the old Cable Car route and up to Bunker Hill to talk about things that aren’t there any more, and some that are, including Angels Flight Railway, currently being renovated for a Labor Day reopening.

Gordon Pattison is a native son of Bunker Hill. His family owned the Salt Box and the Castle, the last two homes standing after the neighborhood was cleared for redevelopment. To learn more, see Gordon’s LAVA Sunday Salon presentation Old Bunker Hill: One Family’s Perspective. Gordon can also be found blogging about the old neighborhood on On Bunker Hill, talking about Angels Flight Railway on Off-Ramp, visiting the few remaining pieces of his family’s houses at Heritage Square Museum, on KCET’s Lost L.A. series Lost Hills episode, and remembering novelist John Fante at his square dedication and atop Bunker Hill. He can also be found on Esotouric’s The Lowdown on Downtown tours, sharing memories of lost Bunker Hill. Links for all the above appearances can be found at lavatransforms.org/event/salon717/
