My guess is that its Cinco De Mayo. We can see the Mexican Mariachi Band and all of the on-stage civic hoopla near the City Hall. Looks like a nice warm May day. Any other ideas?

I spy the old temporary court buildings which were dreadful.

Hey ER. From the crowds near the upper and lower Stations of Angels Flight, could this day have been the last weekend of service?

I rode this once. Not really my idea of fun. It just seems too dangerous to me. Great photos though.!!

When I came across this menu on ebay I hadn't heard of the Via Vigna Inn at Hollywood & Vine.

After several searches I finally located it in this kodachrome slide from 1962. (it's on the right)

A couple of old hotels I wasn't aware of:
First, the Lyndon Hotel at 413 E. 7th Street. (built 1910)

looking east of 7th Street toward downtown.

I really like the old red on white neon sign

postscript:
I found a great vintage slide of the Lyndon Hotel.
you can see it here: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/show...ostcount=26350

The other hotel is the Lyndon's neighbor, the Hotel Madison at 423 E. 7th Street. (also 1910)

The Lyndon apparently had an entire hotel (apartments?) grafted onto it:
