I agree with you, City Boy Doug, and I am alarmed that he has anything to do with something he couldn't possibly know much about, especially when the project is so shrouded in secrecy. It just seems that they're taking the whole matter of renovating the LA River unseriously.

Security Warning:

Twice recently this site has displayed a page containing a small box telling me my Adobe Flash installation is out of date and presenting a tempting button to click to get an update.

DO NOT FALL FOR THIS, IT IS AN ATTEMPT TO LOAD MALWARE ON YOUR MACHINE.

These pages are not the fault of this site; the site is an innocent third party being exploited by the malware writers who use targeted advertising as an attack vector.

What these people do is submit an advertisement to services like Google Adsense and it is the ad that contains code to trigger the display of malware-linked page. Since Adsense selects ads based on what they know about you (which is lots), one of us may see the malicious page while nobody else does because Google has rolled the dice differently for them.

Be careful, it's jungle out there :-)

Edit: per HossC's excellent advice, do not download flash from any site other than Adobe.

There was a genuine security alert concerning Adobe Flash in the first half of July. In my case I got a warning banner courtesy of Firefox. I then Googled to make sure it wasn't a scam, and downloaded the new version directly from Adobe's site. This doesn't affect Earl's warning about fake adverts.

If you do get caught, you can get free anti-malware software from www.malwarebytes.org, and always have up-to-date anti-virus software - there are plenty of free ones available.

I found this photo on eBay. The reverse says it's the Pasadena branch of the Automobile Club of Southern California, and dates it at 1923. No other information is given.
NB. I've grayscaled the image for clarity.

USC has this better image in their Automobile Club of Southern California collection. It's titled "District Office, Pasadena, 1933". There's also a big clue to the location below the mailbox.

I tried Googling for an address, but have drawn a blank so far. I did find this 1930 map which labels the branch office a few streets west of Fair Oaks Avenue.

This second USC image is titled "District Office (exterior), Pasadena (condition 2), 1938", but appears to show a different location.
NB. I've tidied some of the damage on the original image.

Does anyone know what's going on with the building?

I meant to reply before e_r, but got sidetracked. This one's been a long time coming. Steve Needleman from Anjac Fashion properties was set to turn this into 7 units (6K sq ft each except for the penthouse, which will be 10K), then he got sidetracked on a boutique hotel idea and now he's back to the 7 units with one retail space. DTNews has the story, but it's now over a year old (?)

This of course is now the 101 freeway headed west into the LA Civic Center/downtown LA area. This photo really puts things into perspective for me, on how huge those gas storage tanks were. They look like they dominate the skyline. It's funny to me that those tanks basically were like a gateway into downtown when approaching from this route; I always associated the City Hall and the skyscraper skyline as being the visual focal point when headed this way. This would make a great "then" for a then and now. Looking at the lamp posts on the Aliso St. viaduct, I think it's a shame they couldn't have kept the old twin-pendant street lamps. This picture was also taken not too long after the Pacific Electric streetcar was abandoned through this area; you can see the curved right-of-way along the bottom left corner of the photo; the poles that held the trolley wires are still standing too at this point in time.





A glimpse of the bashful gasometers from Ducommun Street, circa 1926 . On the right is the Dept. of Water Works.

I believe this is incorrect. I think this view is looking east and the building in the distance is the old Boyle Heights Orphanage.

When I was a kid in the 60's-70's, my parents piled me into our 65 Chevy Biscayne to visit my grandmother, who lived in an apartment on Laguna, across the street from what is now the seat of the Episcopal Diocese of L.A. Coming in from the 5/101 interchange from the OC, those gasometers were the first sign we were hitting DTLA. I asked my dad what was in the tanks, and he said "Gas". That shocked me, because the old man owned a gas station, and I was amazed they'd fill tanks that big with flammable gasoline so close to downtown. Ah...childhood memories....:D

A couple of Louella Parsons photos
 
I was contacted via my website last week by someone called Louella Rehfield, who turned out to be the niece of Hollywood golden era power-columnist, Louella Parsons. She sent me a couple of photos from her family photo album, which I thought I'd share here.

At the Moulin Rouge (which used to be Earl Carroll’s) on Sunset Blvd. From left to right: Barbara Ettinger, Mecca Graham, Louella Rehfield, her husband Jerry, Louella Parsons, and Ed Ettinger. Circa 1952 or '53. (This photo makes me realize I don't think I've ever seen interior shots of the Moulin Rouge incarnation of that venue. Kinda makes me wish we could see more of it.)

http://www.martinturnbull.com/wp-con...ulin-Rouge.jpg

From left to right: Maggie Ettinger (big time Hollywood publicist and cousin of Louella Parsons,) Orry-Kelly (Warner Bros costumer and subject of new documentary,) Hearst gossip columnist Louella Parsons, and friend Mecca Graham at the Cocoanut Grove. (I know those palm trees were paper mache but they look mighty real in this photo.)

http://www.martinturnbull.com/wp-con...anut-Grove.jpg

I ended up interviewing Louella's niece about her life in LA during the 30s and 40s, and for those who are interested, I posted it on my website.

It seems that Walter Leimert thought that with all the new bridges over the the LA River, people would start moving east of Main Street, evening out the westward population trend. Apparently after only a few years he gave up on that idea and opened Leimert Park to the southwest, providing a resting place of sorts for Our Lady of Noir. I knew Mr. Leimert was a major developer, but never knew his full story, which is well-told here:

This was very evocative for Charlie Chaplin too. I guess it is the factory we see in "Modern Times" (ten years later).
