Clifton's Brookdale

Now THAT is great news GW. Even back in the 70's, Clifton's always looked dirty because the perforations on that awful screening were like smog residue magnets. It has always seemed like such a shame since the entryway tilework/terrazzo is so striking and beautiful!

Another great vintage photo, this one from 1936

Too bad Clifton's Pacific Seas couldn't magically reappear! It was torn down in 1960 shortly after this photo was taken.
