Santa Monica's Sunset Trail once ran from Palisades Park down along the bluffs where the California Incline runs today. It switched back and forth to end at Palisades Beach Road far below. I based this painting on an old photograph I found on the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power Website. CLICK HERE to see that photo. The life guard is pictured in period walking home after a long day on the job. I may use it for my 2018 Dada calendar.
