While searching for freeway and Interstate Highway photographs recently we came across this set of four Kodachrome images. The lead photo was taken in 1973 and the second and third pictures (below) were taken in 1972 and contain traffic headed southbound on Interstate Highway 35W. The last shot contains a traffic jam on the Hollywood Freeway and is followed by a video of the opening of the Hollywood Boulevard.
