Chavez Ravine could have been home to a zoo instead of Dodger Stadium

Via Craig Robinson, an L.A. Times story looking back over 50 years to an alternate plan for Chavez Ravine. A giant zoo. The article has pictures and a map and stuff. Makes it look like the zoo would have been rather gonzo.

Just think: if that had happened, Ry Cooder would have had one less album in his catalog. Or one more way weirder one.
