The California Incline is scheduled to undergo a complete rebuild. The Incline is considered to be a bridge joining Ocean Avenue at Palisades Park to Pacific Coast Highway. It started out as a dirt path linking the bluffs to the ocean and a train at the end of the Long Wharf. The Incline has not changed significantly since the 1940s. Take a look at earlier versions of the California Incline, which was originally called Linda Vista Drive. You can view these and additional images in the Santa Monica Public Library Image Archives through the Library website.
