March 22, 1941: Lee Shippey writes about photographer Charles Chester “C.C.” Pierce (d. 1946), who has spent 55 years documenting Los Angeles. As Shippey notes, many of Pierce’s photographs are at the Huntington (51 linear feet!). This Pierce photo shows Spring Street in 1896, before it was straightened out. Notice the cable car tracks. 
The war, there seems no doubt, will change a great many of our materialistic standards, reducing the importance of wealth, position and inherited power. Something will have to replace these. The most likely candidates are religion, the arts and a new political philosophy, Tom Treanor says. 

NO BELLS to Charlie Chaplin for asking a local theater manager to rerun the feature picture on the comedian's arrival, and leaving in a huff when the manager refused, Jimmie Fidler says.

    Didn’t know Chaplin owned a Huff. Always thought it would be more of a Groucho thing.
