Thanks for the link. My favorite is the 'Shuttle Crossing' sign and the little girl in the window.

Many of us were on the Causeway to see her off. The President had made the trip from Washington with his family. The first launch attempt was scrubbed. I had to wait many days in Orlando until the second attempt. Many could not wait and went home. I made arrangements, changed my return flights and booked more hotel nights. That second time saw a successful launch.

I am sort of sad that I did not attend the procession to see her through the streets. From the pictures, she is an awesome sight on that eerie road trip, much taller than houses.

There are more pictures here, every one of them is amazing.

Shuttle treks across L.A., headed for its space
After many missions and a scenic flyover, Endeavour inches along city streets to its Exposition Park home.
...
Moving the shuttle has been an epic undertaking, involving hundreds of workers who removed traffic lights, turned off power lines and cleared crowds so the Endeavour could make it through the streets.

It created a scene out of one of L.A.'s famous disaster movies, the five-story-tall shuttle nudging between buildings as spectators looked on atop gas station roofs, on cranes and even seated atop those downed traffic lights.

Endeavour’s trek through L.A.

The space shuttle En­deav­our is trav­el­ing from Los Angeles In­ter­na­tion­al Air­port to Ex­pos­i­tion Park on Fri­day and Sat­urday, and it’s shap­ing up to be quite a lo­gist­ic­al chal­lenge. The shuttle will move at a top speed of 2 mph, and at some points along the 12-mile route it will be just inches away from build­ings.

Endeavour: Retired astronaut Mark Kelly recalls 'incredible' shuttle

Retired astronaut Mark Kelly might have commanded space shuttle Endeavour's final mission, but he admitted he's not jealous of the person who has to guide it down the streets of Los Angeles.

"I'm glad I'm not driving the vehicle," Kelly said Thursday. "I'm interested to see how it goes. Hopefully they don't put a scratch on it."
