another thing about Hoss' 1935 aerial.

I couldn't help but notice all the worn paths people had made while taking shortcuts through the numerous empty lots.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/1...923/pMSp5R.jpg

That is what I'm seeing, right? (foot paths)



https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/1...924/teXM0O.jpg






A closer view of some other paths in the vicinity.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/1...923/GQqgRI.jpg

I'm going to be really embarrassed if these lines are something other than paths and shortcuts. :doh:





One more thing:

The shortcut that brought my attention to all the others is the path [shown below] near the accident bridge in the pic Hoss posted yesterday


https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/1...921/Cc29zW.jpg




You can download the complete aerial at mil.library.ucsb.edu (thanks Hoss)

Wait! There's one more.


A car path around the erosion.

See it?






I was bored so I labeled everything.

If my Secret Santa is reading this, I wouldn't object at all if you happened to give me a copy of the soon-to-be-released fully revised 6th edition of An Architectural Guidebook to Los Angeles.

If you don't know, the song (which included a lyric about throwing a mysterious "something", never named, off the "Tallahatchie Bridge", was made into a 1976 film starring Robbie Benson.

I appreciate the follow-ups to the Bobbie Gentry post Slauson Slim...Martin Pal....and CBD.

Hmmmm....but what club on Sunset? Does the place look familiar to anyone?

"It’s a truly remarkable photo, not only because it is a rare bit of visual evidence of Gentry’s early years gigging in Los Angeles, but because of why it was taken. This photo wasn’t snapped because Bobbie Gentry looked good in a two-piece, though she certainly did. The only reason the photo exists is because of the smiling girl in the center. from 333sound
BUT THIS IS WRONG. THE WIRE INFO. SAYS CHERYL IS ON THE RIGHT

OK, I spy a '63 T-Bird, a '65 Corvair Corsa, a '68 Olds Cutlass (maybe); but what's the car we can see only the rear of at the far end of the row? And the tantalizing tail in the foreground? I know somebody knows.

That car at the end is a tough one...I see everything from pre-54 GM to Nash to who knows what. It appears tall...
and it looks like there's another car behind it.... Anyway, the Olds at center is a '65....

Bristolian Dec 8, 2018 4:56 PM

:previous:

I think the car at the rear could be a mid '60s Volvo 122 sedan. As for the car in the foreground, I can't even decide if that's the front or the rear that we see.

Agree.

That hotel has a new name. I sure hope they have removed that contaminated rooftop water tank. The thought of drinking water at that hotel causes me a noirish cold sweat. :runaway:

In this snippet from Cheryl Crane's autobiography, she says the club was The Summit which was located at 6507 Sunset Blvd.

The Red Velvet nightclub opened at 6507 when The Summit closed. It can be seen here in this watermarked stock clip from 1965.

6507 Sunset later housed the famous Club Lingerie, posted by HossC last April -
