Franklin Street Jail

Franklin Street Jail

Venice, California 90291, United States

Created By: Los Angeles Visionaries Association


This is the approximate location of the old Franklin Street Jail. It was demolished in 1888.

The Phillips Block was put up in its place.

The intersection, which does not exist anymore is Franklin & Spring. Widening and extending Spring St in the 1930s destroyed this location
