Great, Hoss-- the floor still looks good too. You don't suppose what looks like a portrait of A. P. Giannini at left in the vintage shot is still there, do you?

Fine in IE!

Excellent sleuthing everyone !!!!!!



Beaudry, Lorendoc (you had the wrong bank but you gave it the ol' college try ), Gaylord Wilshire & HossC.

t2, was it the mid-1960s when you took the kids to Greystone? (I ask because as you no doubt noticed, the Times pic was dated 1965)
Now I'm really baffled about the playhouse.

sidenote:
I would go up to Greystone to read back in the 1980s. -away from noisy traffic and extremely quiet....with no one else around.
Before I'd leave I would make sure to peek in all the windows for ghosts. I've never been inside (except in movies and television shows)


And one more thing t2, thanks for clearing up that Evelyn Nesbit/grandson quote about the censored artwork.

When I saw the delicate-looking wrought iron cross on the roof I surmised it was either long gone or moved inside, perhaps somewhere near or on the alter.

Much to my surprise it's still there and still in the same spot!


gsv

Does anyone if this is the same cross or a replica?

If Los Angeles had a harsher climate it would have rusted away into nothingness by now.

We've previously discussed the redesign of the bell tower on NLA. (if I remember correctly by t2)
(unfortunately I can't find the post right now) -so I can't supply the link.

I don't believe we have seen this photograph on NLA.

'mystery' diner. [Los Angeles?]


http://horrorunlimited.blogspot.co.u...6f56052fb66b70

I found this last night on a blog from the U.K. (the caption simply says a diner in CA)




there's a mural in the corner that made me think 'medieval', say Old King Cole (cape, pointy shoes and ermine collar)

blurry

detail

I know there's a King Cole mural in NYC, were there similar murals in Los Angeles?

I feel like we might have discussed it here NLA)

-also note the distinct 'wave' tiles.

Here's a second image I don't remember seeing before.

"Newspaper boy holding papers" [1947]



I'm not sure which 'Confession' the headline is referring to. There were several & they all proved false.


Go here to see the complete U.K. Black Dahlia post [WARNING: Graphic Content]

This is one of Julius Shulman's later photosets. It's "Job 5611: Art Ansoorian, Kubota Tractor Company (Compton, Calif.), 1978".



I've lightened this second image a little.



I think this garden area was around the back. This time I've stayed with the color images. Two of the black & white images are similar to the color ones, and the other two just have different angles.



All from Getty Research Institute

Kubota relocated to Torrance around 1993, but have since moved to Texas. The building, however, is still standing at 550 W Artesia Boulevard, Compton. It's hard to get a good picture from the road, so I went with an aerial view. If the garden still exists, it's under the large trees behind the right side of the front building.

Lots of them apparently.

From that linK:

"In 1958, Los Angeles City College issued a dictum against Bermuda shorts. Students questioned the fairness in a story by the United Press. "Some of the drama students are allowed to go around in beards," one student protested.

A dean of the school told the UP, "One day last year a boy came to school in something like a bikini ... We can't have that — we have to draw the line some place."


I'd like to see a photo of that!

In the same vein, though:

Vintage Los Angeles
My dad would tell me this story all the time. When his first single came out in 1961 on Liberty, he told my grandmother to go to every single record store in the area and buy out all of his singles...so granny goes to music city and buys all of his singles..the problem is she didn't go to anywhere else..the funny part was the fact that Bullocks/ I. Magnin got a few of his singles in and Granny who worked for the owners never thought about buying them out.
