Kudos to you sopas_ej.

You didn't waste any time providing some great 'before' and 'after' photos.
(By the way, I'm glad you didn't stand in the middle of the street)

The Garfield Theater photos were very interesting. It's amazing how long the 'ghost' signage survived over the years
citing 'Vitaphone' and 'Movietone'. Geez, what kind of paint did they use back then?

I also love the photos of the Times Building, and like you said, especially the first one.
I've spent over a month now in the USC archives.....and that's the first time I've seen that particular photograph.
I somehow missed it. So I'm very grateful you posted it.

You also have a good eye in noticing the details in your photographs.
For example, the tracks ending at the curve in that last photo (also great).

Keep up the good work sopas_ej. Again, thanks!


I'll add some more photos soon.
