"One of LA's 30 Essential Blogs." L.A. Observed
I love the light. I assume you broke in and turned it on. The number above the window is the year the world ends. Again.
This Synagogue is so unassuming I almost think it's hiding on a back street in the middle east somewhere.
PA ,It is hiding on a back street right there in the near east. Unassuming is a wonderful description.K, Well you've found your neighborhood my friend. Don't leave. One day I'm flying myself out there and prowling with you. I"m scared already but I think I can do it.V
I just love that.
It would be interesting to know the time of day/night your images were taken.
Oh wait a minute, I know. This is from the East LA area, maybe Boyle Heights, maybe on Broadway, west of Pasadena Ave. Fascinating old stores and houses from around ... 1920, or so? Predominantly Jewish and Eastern European at that time.
Your photographs are fantastic!
Fantastic. Interestingly enough, BH was once home to the largest concentration of Jews west of the Mississippi River back in the day, with some 50,000+ Jews and 100 houses of worship. How times have changed..
It's also worth noting that BH was the fist LA home of the popular Canter's Deli.
