|Title||Slauson Avenue Storm Drain|
Slauson Avenue storm drain outlet, west of Moynier Lane (a discontinued minor street south of Adams Boulevard that later became La Cienega Boulevard). This was the largest single project funded by the Depression-era New Deal's Workers Progress Administration (WPA) that employed on a daily basis more than 7,500 workers. By January 1936 thousands of workers began a 100-foot wide, 15-foot deep trench along the southern flank of the Baldwin Hills that would extend three miles from Crenshaw district to Ballona Creek.
