A vanished city lives again...

Friday, January 26, 2024


Well, after years of inactivity, I think it's finally time to make it official: this blog is closed.

Not that I've lost interest in Los Angeles history. Not at all. I still find the subject as captivating as ever. What changed is that I learned pretty much everything about old L.A. that I set out to, and more to the point, some time ago, I shifted the focus of my historical sleuthing to the town of my birth – Covina, California – and decided that's where I should concentrate my efforts thenceforth.

So, that's – 30 – for me here! Time to join all those who have gone before me in Los Angeles past.
