The Eastsider takes a tour through the 1924 pedestrian tunnel underneath Sunset Boulevard by Micheltorena Elementary School in Silver Lake, one of the first built during a fad for them in the twenties and thirties. This one's become a crash pad for homeless people: "In the center of the tunnel, mattress sat on wood pallets near a chest of drawers. Sheets strung across the tunnel created small rooms. The tunnel walls were decorated with a pair of posters, and the words 'Mouse House' were scrawled in black spray paint." [Eastsider LA, image via]
