Is it kosher to post an image that has been stitched together from another site that only shows you a portion of the image...

Could it say CROSS WITH COURTESY?

Excellent stitch job there, westcork. A highly informative map of a very historic part of town. Thank you.

Good, Rudy.
I'd buy that but I'm seeing "Cross with (blur) tmmy" or "trmy".I don't know yet.
"COURTESY" is best for time being. At least it makes sense.

I'm very, very tempted to beg Frere Wotgko to work on a 3D rendition of the Lugo House for us. Floor plans are available.
What he did with Charles "Dad" Bailey's news stand was amazing!
I almost demand it! ...humbly.

Please do the Lugo House next!

Check this post link from brother gsjansen:

Bless you brother Westcork for your support on this.
I PMed Frere Wotgko my personal plea.
I trust the conversion from inches and feet to meters won't be a problem.
I hope he Groks it.
I think it would be a great gift to Los Angeles from France, close but not quite rivaling the Statue of Liberty.
Personally, from this coast, I'd prefer to have the Lugo House back again if only in 3D graphics.

As a compliment to the many posts concerning bridges, an article doth appear:

"Through a forgotten bridge engineer, a vision of Los Angeles"
"Henry G. Parker's bridges were meant to inspire. A century after his death in a sewer sluiceway, the misty remnants of his creations are still eloquent."

Wow! I'm so not used to seeing it in color.
I may have seen that before but didn't remember.
I forgot to breathe for more than a few seconds just now....
Thanks!

I'm going to post this one too just because.

My own photo on flickr.








I recently reviewed some terribly faded B&W water-stained images of long gone residences near the Beverly Center. (The photos, which I am informed were probably from an address on Sweetzer Avenue, are not mine, and too decrepit to warrant reproduction here.) I was struck by the seeming-familiarity of the building facades and central courtyard layouts with the above photo. Surprisingly, a few still exist. As but one example, take a look at 120 S. Flores Street. https://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q...ed=0CAgQ_AUoAg


In that same Beverly Boulevard neighborhood is another building that looks as though it might have rooftop archers. On the NW corner of Sweetzer and Beverly is a two story deco structure. 8301 Beverly Blvd. Any information concerning the building's history or what it started it out as?

Mnt. Lowe brochure
 
I know there have been a lot of posts on this subject, but I did not find a copy of this brochure posted. I found this in an antique store in Michigan and thought this group might like it. It's got some interesting info. on it regarding rates.

BTW: if you want to find old LA postcards and adverts go to the mid-west, that's where they were sent.

Anyways, this is a multi-fold as you can see with lots of color. I had to multi-scan it and stitch it together. Enjoy. - Mike

I am so intrigued by the name 'Deadman Siphon'. Is anyone familiar with it's history? (all kinds of mysterious things come to mind)

Thanks Mike: Simple fare but who cares at that altitude. Plus, all the food had to be brought up on the trolley.

Availing oneself of the right dessert will insure a regular trip to visit Mt. Lowe! :D
