I saw this junk pile on a side street in Chinatown a few weeks before I made this capture. To me, it looked more like an art installation than a junk heap. The 3 wheel cart on the left also intrigued me. Many details indicate that it is a 1940s Cushman Mailster but I cannot confirm this because I couldn’t find a photo of it online. Doesn’t matter though. The cart is placed perfectly. I returned in early morning on 8/02/2014 and it all came together. If you want to see this scene, do it now. It won’t be around for very long in ever-changing Downtown Los Angeles.
