L.A. Is A Beautiful City

(click to enlarge)
Built in 1927, this building, located at Olympic and La Cienega, was originally a water treatment plant for the city of Beverly Hills. Restored in 1988 by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, it is now The Fairbanks Center for Motion Picture Study.

Strangely enough, it looks like a church and yet it seems that at no time was it ever use for that purpose.

Beautifully done.

I agree with Spacedlaw, it really looks like a church. I've always loved the green colour in night pics.

Hello, K,

Thank you for your visit to my blog. I liked your poem. You are multi-talented.

This DOES look like a church. But I think it is a town hall, you know, where they keep the town crier who shouts out the lottery numbers every Sunday. It looks similar to my town hall.

Regard,
Coral
