There is a group of original slides that were just listed on eBay.

They're being sold separately.


Here's the first slide. (my favorite)...I'll post the rest later today.

Looking south on Olive Street toward the Biltmore Hotel. (1950s?)

We've seen this view many times on NLA but it's always exciting to see a never-seen-before original. The empty lot on the right is the former site of the Fremont Hotel.



This one.

side note:...The Fremont can be seen in a few film noirs.








Also too. . .

I'm curious about the skybridges connecting the two white buildings. I don't recall seeing them before.

The top two are obviously passageways for employees.




Just for fun.

note the Christmas thingy. I know we've discussed them before but I don't remember what we decided they were. umm. . .a place to post letters to Santa?
