Victorian L.A. (URM Studio)
Victorian L.A. explores the relationship between Los Angeles's nineteenth-century neighborhoods and the rail network that served them. Horse cars, cable cars, and electric cars--our city's early transportation companies--were highly competitive and when unified became the nation's most extensive system. When the trolly cars were illegally removed, the Victorian neighborhoods soon after disappeared.
