I'm amazed at LAboomer52's computer skills.
The only way I could do something like that is with an exacto-knife and elmer's glue. :)

Where could this have been?

The Chelsea, at 504 S. Bonnie Brae, in 1952--doubly reminiscent of New York in that there's a Barbizon around the corner on 6th Street.


The Chelsea is now the Cameo:

couldn't help notice the mountains angle lined up perfectly between this previously posted 1968 Kodachrome and this late 20's postcard.

Alas, 1982 was a bit early for me. As a Northener, in '82 I was frequenting shows at the Goleta Valley Community Center, I got my drivers license in '83 and started prowling LA for gigs 'round then. I have a scar on my chin from an Olympic Circle Jerks show, for what it's worth.

As this is noirish Los Angeles, I have to say, I have never experienced more true noir than LA in the early-mid 80s. There was something about it that reeked constant and unrepentant cesspool. Punk Rock was its true and virtuous outlet. Any and all of my time spent in LA in the 80s was sick, ugly, complacent, violent, stuporous and cheap. I have scars to show for it, but no memory thereof. The pleasures I attained from its disease-addled brain are the only reason I moved to its fetid terrain. Huzzah!

Check out Wall of Voodoo. The area was a mid-20s open-air boxing arena on El Centro between Hollywood and Selma before the Hollywood Legion Stadium was built in '38. It became a bowling alley in 1959.
