As promised, here are some photos of a few neighborhoods I visited recently.
First, a few shots of South Pasadena taken along Mission and El Centro to contrast with the views from 1907, then a visit to the 4600 block of South Wesley Avenue and the 100 block of West 52nd Street. Note the various states of preservation and decay, along with generous layers of stucco.
Views of Wesley Avenue
I always seem to run across interesting cars, a Corvair on Wesley and an old jalopy in South Pasadena.
And here’s an interesting mystery from Fedora Street. What’s the purpose of the guard shack/ticket booth? I can’t imagine.

Behold, the mysterious guard shack
If it’s to keep out the stucco crew, it’s too late.
