Monday's Postcard: Los Angeles

When I purchased these postcards as a child, I was attracted by the colors and lights. Now, they remind me of LA Confidential, the book by James Ellroy and the 1997 film Especially the last card which depicts the Fox Carthay Circle Theater, which hosted many epic movie premieres during the 1930's and 40's. By the 1960s the Carthay was considered obsolete and it was torn down in 1969; today, two office buildings and a city park occupy its former location at 6316 San Vicente Boulevard.

Ryan and I will be hiking in August for the Washington Trails Association. We are looking for pledges to contribute for the protection and maintenance of Washington State Trails. Please consider making a donation, no amount is too small!!  Just follow the link posted below. Thanks so much!!
