I believe there is a tall flagpole on top.

Maybe the car experts can weigh in...I think the "flagpole" might be an artifact.

It does look fort like.
I think you might be correct Lorendoc. Thanks for trying to figure it out. (or for figuring it out)

I'm not sure what you mean by this?





It had slipped my mind that the Pacific Coast Club wasn't torn down until 1988. (such a shame )

All that's missing is Errol Flynn fluently swinging from the chandelier.

OH NO is the familiar old miner and mule statue gone now?

Yep--gone!
Well shucks. Do you think they moved the 'Miner and his Mule' to a different location inside the park?

It was the "Criminal Justice Center" at Spring & Temple! Apparently on that October 1969 day, I was interested enough to point my Instamatic at it a couple of times. Once, from the City Hall observation deck.




And once again at ground level, shooting across Spring Street.




That Dynachrome color really pops, doesn't it?

Dynachrome & Dynacolor was 3M's version of Kodachrome & Kodacolor. I think 3M did better with their Mining & Manufacturing in Minnesota.

I'm hoping a more recent visitor to Knott's than I can give us good news on that!
