As the Army Corps readies its public unveiling of four revisions of the L.A. River, take a look at this insanely nostalgic set of 25 photos of the pre-concrete river at Curbed L.A. Just how much concrete will come out will be a matter of public debate, even in this time of diminishing federal dollars, so get ready to comment. I’ll list a link once it’s available.

Also, we’re closing in on Labor Day and the end of the recreation zone pilot project. Walt Young of the  MRCA says that all went well  from the quasi-public agency’s view, which is good news for the zone’s renewal next year.

So, if you haven’t wetted that fly line yet, get out there!

See you on the river, Jim Burns
