And now we're in the chrome era. Looking up B'way from 8th.



Below, the gala premier for Back Street -- 1961:





Pine Ave -- note the Palace amid all the neon.

True noir: of the late 60s-on-up variety.



The Greyhound Station was built in 1966 and soon became one of the sketchiest places in town. It's now just a jumble of shops. The remains of the giant sign are still there, even. Sixth and Los Angeles.



And downtown continues to be psychedelic!
