The Los Angeles Alligator Farm was a pretty crazy place as seen from these old photos from the Los Angeles Public Library.

Located next door to the Los Angeles Ostrich Farm in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles, CA, it served as both an alligator farm and a major city tourist attraction from 1907 until 1953. It was eventually shut down in 1984 after the annual attendance dropped below 50,000. All the animals were relocated to a private estate in Florida.

Looked like a pretty crazy place where people got a bit too up close and personal to the gators for my taste.
