Thanks MR. I should have recognized the Birdman.



Here's another saxophonist, Big Jay McNeely at the Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles, circa.1953

I used to bank there. Got a Liberty passbook account in 1968. The location eventually became Coast Federal S&L in the 1970's. I had money there until the late 1980's.

Perhaps some marginally good news from Photobucket
 
While PB users who had free accounts are still S-O-L, it seems that those who have paid Plus accounts do not have to
upgrade to the $400 per year account until the end of 2018. PB support tells me that as long as PB users renew their
existing Plus accounts, those users will continue to have 3rd-party hosting from Photobucket until the end of 2018.

PhotoBucket is trying to kill site.

I'm sure many of you know that LA will be hosting the 2028 Summer Olympics.

So, going with that theme...


Preparing the Coliseum for the 1932 Summer Olympics.

Are Robert Graham's great statues still in place? If so, I hope they clean the pigeon shit off of them by 2028.... (I don't know who the girl was, but the male figure is very flattering to Terry Schroeder. Whoa, shades of Forrest Tucker.)

Yes they are indeed still in place. I always thought it was funny that unlike male nude statues of the antiquities, this one is circumcised; presumably it's an exact likeness of Terry Schroeder.

I guess the head and brain are useless in the Olympics.

By the way, there is a grievous production error visible in this shot. See it?

Shouldn't we read "SUNSET BLVD" on the top front of the Hollywood car when heading North ?

Can you imagine looking out your dining room window and a hoard of tourists are posing by your pool.

Eddie's address is written on the back. (there might be missing a number after 6) but I don't think so.
