Oil in dem hills!

Interesting to me that oil was discovered in Los Angeles back in the late 1800's. Around Dodger Stadium to be exact.

According to legend, Edward L. Doheny was in the downtown area of Los Angeles when he saw a cart whose wheels were coated in tar. When he asked the man where the substance had come from, he pointed to the northeast. He then examined the area and soon discovered the Los Angeles Field after drilling here, near present day Dodger Stadium.

Soon after, oil became a huge industry in Los Angeles and still provides to this day. Amazing photo of some unknown (to me) spot in LA.
