Los Angeles in the 60's

I drive through Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley and admire the remaining 50's and 60's architecture.  I wish I could go back in time for a few days and live in LA during the mid century.   Here are some pics from the era:







My Dad used to hang out here!

I've been thinking of shooting my own photos of mid century architecture for years now. I guess it's time to start!

I would be fun to reshoot photos from the same locations.
