Looking Back: L.A. River Stories

On December 10th, 2010, Departures held a StoryShare in Elysian Valley where the Departures team collected locals' stories about the Los Angeles River. One of the recurring themes were reminiscences about what the river was like when our interview subjects were children. These are some of their stories.
