  1. Hi – this is one of my all-time favorite pictures (quintessential LA view 1930’s). What struck me the most was the tranquility. I see why I loved LA at the time, and notice most especially the contrast between then and when we finally left LA in 1985 (after living in LA for 48 years). Thanks for sharing this lovely remembrance, L

    Would love to have been in one of those vehicles. The Brown Derby looks white. What a great time period! Jean
