This is hard to believe, but this image shows Los Angeles back in the 1930s. You’re looking at La Cienega Blvd near 3rd St. Pretty wild to see oil wells in the middle of the street!

The road is paved around the still-producing oil wells on La Cienega Blvd. near Third Street, circa 1930s.

And here’s what the road looks like today on Google Street View.
