Most of the houses opposite the stadium along 42nd Place are still there, including the two larger ones in the scene above....







More scenes from Armored Car Robbery...


Four architectural icons in one shot:






The east side of Los Angeles St between 11th & 12th...














I'll leave it to someone else to identify the location where the '39 Dodge careens around a corner and winds up at the mouth of a tunnel...

I believe that the cars are turning from eastbound Temple St. into the space between P.E. Hill St. Tunnel No. 2 and the continuation of northbound Hill St.

P.S., Great set of photos! Thanks, GW!

Yes, with that center, they do look like semidouble Dahlias, don't they? It would be an odd choice, as they'd kind of smell "green" (as opposed to "sweet"). Not an offensive smell, but not a very attractive one either. On the one flower I'm seeing fairly well, and guessing, it looks like the color shades to ?--knowing Dahlias, probably something like yellow--around the center, the outer edges likely being something like orange-red. And that concludes our Dahlia news for today.

odinthor, is it true 'black' dahlias are really a deep deep burgundy?

When I was in grade school one of my classmates' Mom committed suicide.
She had left a note on the kitchen table requesting, of all things, a black dahlia at her funeral.

Our entire class went to the funeral visitation and sure enough, there it was. This huge black flower pinned on her dress like a corsage.
I'll never forget that as long as I live.

I believe the two mystery words are North Cucamonga. Maybe that's where the grapes were grown?

The same CD shows that the two were also proprietors of the North Cucamonga Winery (North Cucamonga, Cal), with an LA address at 430 W 7th Street.

By 1914, the business had become the Italian-American Vineyard Co, with Giovanni as president and premises at 1507 E 1st Street.

I appreciate the sentiment CBD.

The 'black' dahlia at the funeral was much darker than that.

It was more like THIS.

'mystery' building

"Pasadena CA building demolition 1978 Keep out sign"











I hope someone here on NLA might recognize this building.

You can find the four 35mm slides on ebay

Yes, ER....these flowers can vary greatly in color. Maybe the dahlia can be the Official Flower for NLA. What could be more à propos ?

Now we need the Official dog, car, colors, flag, drink, soda, meal, food, song, motto, film and who knows what else. Post your Nominees for each category. Maybe someone with computer skills can make
a Poll form?

Yes, absolutely, most "black" flowers are really deepest red or deepest purple red or deepest Maroon: Dahlias, Roses, Daylilies, Sweet Peas, various Arums, and so on. They tend to burn easily in the sun, so they're not quite the thing for Sunny Southern California!
