Art Deco was such a cool period.

Yeah, and since people still love art deco buildings, why don't designers just go back to designing some new art deco buildings and stop with the blank they are designing now.

I looked to see if the building to the right of the home (and on the north side of Franklin) is still standing but I'm 99% sure it's gone.

Edit. I just realized the building is the back of the garage at 7406 and it's still there! (circled below)

Someone on eBay is selling negatives in groups of 10 or 11.

Here are two of the them. (as positives)



This first one is a mystery location.

The car (in motion) saves the photo from being mundane.







The seller posted this next one backwards, so I flipped it.

I think I know the area where this one was taken but I don't recognize the road with the white, wooden side-rail. (far left)


. . .more coming.

I think were looking northeast across Sunset, with the road on the right being N Broadway. The building in the foreground is the Colima Restaurant and Bozzani Motors is behind. The white side-rail is on Fort Moore Place.

Unsurpringly, Bozzani and Colima have appeared on NLA before. This image is from ER's post 650 from December 2009.

You can clearly see Blozzani but what's Zani's. (far left)

And here are negatives 3 and 4. (both mystery locations)



Well, I guess the first one isn't much of a mystery. As you can see, it's the 2500 block of west 7th Street.

The Louvre...... . .an interesting looking place. I'd say it's an art gallery or an artist supply store. Waddya' think?





#4
https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/1...922/Q4tYGH.jpg

This one is a bit confusing. I'd say it's either a photo-shoot. . . or the attractive lady is simply adjusting her shoe while waiting to cross the street.

And what kind of pole is she leaning on? It looks like a sawed-off street-light.

#1 I'm almost certain we've seen this place on NLA before. #3 has a street sign 2500 block of W 7th, cross street Carondelet. Squinting at The Louvre, it looks like it has a street number: 24 _ _.

I found a website where someone's looking for an appraisal of some artwork from The Louvre:
I have an original abstract painting that I inherited from my aunt's estate. The artist's name is***** and the date on the painting is 1953. On the back frame of the painting is the address of the gallery where it was purchased: The Louvre, 2451 W. 7th Street,Los Angeles, CA.
By 1956, the CD lists the Plumbers Local Union No 78 at 2451 W 7th Street. A demo permit was issued in 1976.

The building to the left of The Louvre (above the head of the man on the hydrant) is the back of the extant Park Wilshire Apartments.

Here's an aerial photograph that captures The Louvre!

It's from GaylordWilshire's blog. . .in a post about the Feuerborn-Murray house. (visible to the left of The Louvre in the aerial above)

It appears that 'The Louvre' building was built in front of the Feuerborn-Murray garage. (shown below)

Absolutely. Would love to see a 50 or 60 story Richfield-inspired tower with the spire. It would be amazing.

Martin Pal Dec 31, 2021 6:54 PM

Happened upon this photo today. The address is on it! And you know it's a period photo with those gas prices!

This is the era of architecture a la mundane. One could call it abstract architecture....the architecture of the insane. 99% explanation and 1% inspiration. It takes no talent to be an architect....just know how to breathe and sharpen a pencil.

Los Angeles has been wet this month.

The wettest Decembers in Los Angeles since records began in 1871:

1889: 15.8 inches
2010: 10.23 inches
2021: 9.72 inches

Normal average December rainfall: 2.23 inches

Days we had measurable rain this month:
Dec. 7, 9, 13, 14, 16, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30.

The National Weather Service tweeted this out yesterday afternoon: "Not surprisingly, we have broken the daily rainfall record at Downtown LA with 2.34" as of 300 PM this afternoon. This record total will increase as light rain will continue through this evening."

The old record was 1.85" set in 1936. (I don't know if they mean daily record for December or just in general.)

I wonder what the consecutive days rainfall record is; we had rain 9 days in a row!

This page has a video of rain flooding Union Station yesterday:

I've been loving the rain, here's hoping there's more to come (apologies to Union Station travelers)! I believe "daily record" refers to that particular calendar date.

Yes, HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I don't know what I'd do without you all. :)

Are there enough clues to figure out where the motorcycle was abandoned? :shrug:




This may help.

Here's an excellent original snapshot of a McDonnel's that was listed a few days ago on eBay.


https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/1...924/MqssZM.jpg

I was surprised to see that it was already gone. (from eBay)






I can't help myself. Here it is LARGER.

I see that there is a street number on the building next door.
