Description:

Blue cloth gilt. Signed by legendary Los Angeles bridge architect and engineer Merrill Butler on the front end paper. "As the city's Engineer for Bridges and Structures, Butler guided the construction of nine extraordinarily graceful concrete-arch bridges over the Los Angeles River between 1923 and 1933.The bridges--1st Street, 4th Street, 6th Street, 7th Street, 9th Street, Spring Street, Cesar E. Chavez Boulevard (formerly Macy Street), Olympic Boulevard and Glendale-Hyperion--were built to relieve congestion at the river, where pedestrian, automobile and trolley traffic intersected with copious railroad activity. The new spans replaced ugly, rusting, but easily manufactured iron-truss structures.Under Butler's guiding hand, the new bridges were not to be mere efficient conveyors of traffic, but stylish, unique civic monuments that would uplift the populace and engender pride in the expanding city. They were designed, variously, in neoclassical, Spanish Colonial, Streamline Moderne and Gothic Revival styles. Many incorporated concrete benches and graceful balconies where pedestrians could rest and look out on the panorama of city, mountains and river (the L.A. River had not yet been entombed in concrete)."It was just stunning that the city would have built them," says California bridge historian Stephen D. Mikesell, who surveyed all of the historic bridges in the state during the mid-1980s. "In the number of beautiful bridges per square mile, I don't know where in the world you would find that many, and I was struck by how many people just didn't know about them, even in L.A."It's understandable why Merrill Butler's bridges escape the notice of present-day Angelenos. Traffic over them nowadays is relatively light, the freeway system having absorbed the lion's share. In some instances, the bridges' decorative balusters and other ornamentation were stripped away or compromised (witness the modern "gooseneck" freeway lamps tied onto the crosshatched Art Deco concrete light standards of the 6th Street Bridge).Moreover, the full glory of the bridges was meant to be seen not from above, but from below, at the level of the railroad tracks."Mild edge wear to binding. Small scuff to front end paper where previous bookseller sticker had been. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Problems in Railway Regulation The purpose of this work is to follow the course of railway regulation in this country to the present time, to consider the several ways in which our railway system has affected the general welfare, and to offer some suggestions as to its future regulation; if that system is to be viewed as an organic factor in the further exploitation of our natural resources and in the evolution of our characteristic social order. Its scope includes such a description of past conditions as seems necessary to trace to their origin the ills complained of, and to exhibit the effects of the attempts to cure them by government regulation. These intermediate conditions have been treated with greater particularity in previous works on Restrictive Railway Legislation and on Railway Corporations as Public Servants, of which this work is in that sense a continuation.
