Photos of the Angels Flight Railway in downtown Los Angeles, Ca., circa 2010. Connecting the streets of Hill to The California Plaza, the self-titled "Shortest Railway in the World" originally ran (in a slightly different location) from 1901 to 1969. This location opened in 1996.
|Not many non-L.A. residents know of the Angels Flight Railway. But ask a person of a certain age and they'll tell you that Angels Flight was THE name in tight-fitting, hidden-pocket, wide "bell" bell-bottom disco slacks during the 70s. |

Currently serves as the home base for the annual Academy Awards ceremony. The complex is modeled after a set from the 1916 D.W. Griffith film "Intolerance."
