Metro Transportation Area Southern California – Station to Station

1980s, Architecture, Transport • 3040 Views • Comments Off on Metro Transportation Area Southern California – Station to Station

The following images have all been culled from the Flickr group ‘Metro Transportation Library and Archive’, and are all proposed construction drawings for new stations and their surroundings. The metro area in question is Southern California, in particular Los Angeles, and most of their pics are of ‘operator of the month’ and employees parties etc, but these beauties are all the illustrated ‘plans’ for projects. Some went on to be made, others didn’t for one reason and another. To be honest, we’re not over supplied with info on this subject, suffice to say we thought the images were interesting enough to share with you, and that’s the main thing.

 

Most of the drawings (in fact all) are from the mid to late eighties, usually not a classic period for design, these however have a definite charm! Some of American readers out there will recognise the places, and probably still frequent them today. one of the more interesting facts we found whilst researching this is that George Takei of Star Trek fame is on the board of the Metro Transportation committee for California. A passion of his perhaps….
