I believe there is a tall flagpole on top.

Maybe the car experts can weigh in...I think the "flagpole" might be an artifact.

It does look fort like.

I think you might be correct Lorendoc. Thanks for trying to figure it out. (or for figuring it out)

It had slipped my mind that the Pacific Coast Club wasn't torn down until 1988. (such a shame :()

OH NO is the familiar old miner and mule statue gone now?

Yep--gone!

Well shucks. Do you think they moved the 'Miner and his Mule' to a different location inside the park?

It was the "Criminal Justice Center" at Spring & Temple! Apparently on that October 1969 day, I was interested enough to point my Instamatic at it a couple of times. Once, from the City Hall observation deck.

And once again at ground level, shooting across Spring Street.

That Dynachrome color really pops, doesn't it?

not sure what Dynachrome is. Is it color using only variations of brown? ;)

Dynachrome & Dynacolor was 3M's version of Kodachrome & Kodacolor. I think 3M did better with their Mining & Manufacturing in Minnesota. :D

I'm hoping a more recent visitor to Knott's than I can give us good news on that!

IHOP, which recently changed its iconic name to IHOb, has revealed what the new consonant stands for: "burgers." The name change accompanies a line of new burgers at the chain.

IHOP seems to be hedging its bets by saying the IHOb name is "for the time being," suggesting the effort may be more of a marketing ploy rather than a true rebranding campaign. Stay tuned.

IhoP or Ihob, to me the place is The House of Plenty of Burnt Coffee.

ER, here's your bomb-dropping mouse from Babes in Toyland, aka March of the Wooden Soldiers. It's a capuchin monkey in a very creepy costume.

The mouse looks suspiciously like Mickey did in 1934. Probably not an accident. Producer Hal Roach was a good friend of Mr. Disney.

I usually love Laurel & Hardy films, but this movie is simply unwatchable.

I talked with Hal Roach in the 1980s and he said the project was taken over by Stan Laurel. Laurel was only given acting credits, but Roach said it was really a Stan Laurel project. Roach did not like the film, and in his nineties, he still wanted to remake it.

That's not a fort or tower; that's a shallow-angle view of the flat front of a building, that comes to a peak in the center, with the side of the building to the left (behind the car). You can see the bottom edge of the roof - the horizontal line above the car - but the top edge is hard to make out.

In this case we're looking at definition 2c of "artifact" at merriam-webster.com:
a defect in an image (such as a digital photograph) that appears as a result of the technology and methods used to create and process the image

I'll admit that this humorous acronym is probably at least 20 years old, but your post brought it to mind:

Most Applications Crash, If Not, The Operating System Hangs

I guess that computer people have as many of these as car people :).

Chrome - transparency film
But not Kodachrome for imitators, but Ektachrome

Has this ever been posted here before?

June, 1919. Looking east from the intersection of 3rd and Hill. Notice it's the Vegetarian Cafeteria on the left, which is seen in other pictures posted here but from across the intersection, looking west towards the 3rd Street Tunnel and Angels Flight.
