Airport arrival, 1958

26 July 1958. Van Cliburn arrives via United Air Lines for Hollywood Bowl performance". My gosh, he looks young (he was 23). Wow, that was a lot of years ago. Van Cliburn died yesterday at 78.

LOL...I look in the mirror and have to quickly turn around to see if my father has risen from the grave.

But Brea Canyon is mostly in OC and the photo said "Los Angeles", so it's just a guess.

Thx so much FredH, I've got a real soft spot for Capitol:

Original building by Abel Stearns, 1831, rebuilt in bricks imported from Philadelphia in 1855 with millstones from France for "Eagle Mill', then "Deming Mill".
Capitol Mill founded here in 1883. Morgan & Walls were architects for the 1898 additions.

Building shuttered when the company moved to larger premises in Colton in 1998. ConAgra acquired Capitol Milling in 1999.

Excellent posts on the Capitol Milling Co. FredH and tovanger2.

Here is a link to my post in 2011 with a couple larger pics.

It's just amazing how much you already know about L.A., tovangar. Are there no surprises for you?

Here are some more Capitol Milling pics in a prior post of ER's

City Hall from Fort Moore Hill, Arnold Hylen, 1951

Nice, typically stark Arnold Hylen shot of City Hall. But look right there in the middle distance, right behind that chain link fence. See that 'curb'? I think that's the south portal of the ever elusive Hill Street tunnel no. 2.

I'm continually surprised by this thread GW, maybe most especially by posts from out-of-towners like you, which throw my hometown into high relief. Over-familiarity can make it all but invisible sometimes and seem anything but special. I hope I've expressed my gratitude sufficiently. At 65, I should know a lot more and still get confused. I would know almost nothing about the old train stations, the Stock Yards, etc., so many things, if it weren't for noirish Los Angeles

Thx e_r. I'd been thinking about Capitol Mills, relatively recently boxed in by new development. I don't know if that makes the endlessly-proposed lofting more or less likely. It would be a fun building to own, so near the Corn Fields.


I'm still gob-smacked by the imagery in that Westwood Hills flyer:

You gotta hand it to those Janss Bros....

P.S.
I meant to ask in my previous post, what's with the other address for Capital Mills in that old letterhead? I can't figure that one out. Anyone know?

I actually like evidence of time passing. A little harder for me to exhibit though, as I was born with grey hair.

On the 1921 Baist map, their Spring Street location carries two notations, one for Baker Iron Works and one for Capitol. My guess would be they moved into the Baker property sometime shortly before 1921.
