Twain Historic Bridges Tours – December 3 and 10
November 24, 2010 § 1 Comment
Starting next week, I am working with Metabolic Studio to host river bridges tours. Make a reservation today! AS OF 12/2/2010 BOTH TOURS ARE FULL – still accepting a few standbys in case of cancellation, though. I am hoping to do a few more of these in 2011!
The Metabolic Studio Twain Tour:
L.A. Creek Freak Historic Bridges Excursion
This December, the Metabolic Studio teams up with L.A. Creek Freak for a new installment in its “The Twain” Trolley tours. The December tours will showcase a dozen of Los Angeles’ iconic historic downtown bridges. These monumental City Beautiful bridges, over the Los Angeles River and in Downtown L.A., were built between 1906 and 1932 and represent a hopeful forward-looking moment in the city’s history of growth and expansion. Many of the beautiful concrete-arch spans are targeted for demolition; this tour will spur conversations on the bridges’ significance – past and future.
What: Twain Trolley tours of the Downtown Los Angeles bridges
When: Fridays, December 3rd and 10th 2010
Trolley departs 1pm, returns 3:15pm
Where: The Metabolic Studio, 1745 North Spring Street, Unit 6, Los Angeles CA 90012 (site of Under Spring and Farmlab)
How much: Tour is free, but space is limited; reservations are strongly recommended – please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: tours include three short walking stops (three approximately 5-minute walks), so wear comfortable walking shoes.
All tours will include commentary by, yours truly, Joe Linton, author of Down by the Los Angeles River and contributor to L.A. Creek Freak.
Each trip also includes special guest conversationalists:
