Thanks for posting these photos and info on the Bimini Slough. I've been interested in it ever since I saw this photo but didn't even know it had a name. I always wondered what happened to that little canyon that required a bridge to cross. It got filled in. I hate when they do that...

Undated Aerial Photo, facing northeast, probably from the 1910's. The Bimini Baths are in the center. Across the street, in the lower left corner is the Rayfield building. Sacatela Creek is on the right. Streetcar tracks cross the creek on a wooden bridge. First Street runs along the top edge, Second Street along the bottom and Bimini Place is along the left. Photo from the Los Angeles Public Library.
