It is in the Bunker Hill neighborhood of Los Angeles. fun. might as well be 200 years old. My pleasure Z. I corrected my mistake Herr von LAX – I have no clue why I wrote San Francisco. Life is fast on your side of the ocean, dear Norma! An amazing find, Herr Mago. I like the soundtrack to the video too. I must have a look at this internet archive, MJ. I think it’s Dr. John’s tribute to Buddy Bolden, but – gema forbid! – I am not allowed to hear this in Germany via another video. I tried the link but was told the video is currently “unreachable.” I shall imagine the drive through 1940s Los Angeles instead. And then I shall retire to my gentleman’s residence for a cocktail or two….. Hello and welcome Nick, thank you for your first comment here. The purified video does not always work, I have no idea why, possibly too much traffic. Here is the link to youtube. “gema” does not allow me to hear music of Dr. John here. Yesterday I had the sound, today I hear nothing. Anyway, it’s a great video, hope you enjoy it. P.S. – just this minute it worked again … [way off topic] Some astoundingly beautiful cemetery photos. Very fine photographs, thank you for the link Herr v.Lax. fantastic, sugar! i know that area of los angeles before and after the bunker hill re-development. the site has other tours of l.a. that are equally as nostalgic for me. i remember riding up and down angel’s flight with my grandmother and going to central market. in the ’90’s i worked in city hall and spent a lot of time downtown! thanks for link! xoxoxox Fabulous, I could actually play the video. It’s great to see the ghost of an old neighbourhood. Thank you for finding this gem! xx I am very pleased that you like it, dear Svannah! It just crossed my path Roses. Comments are closed.
