Yeah, I only saved every single one of these on to my computer. Of course I have a bad habit of saving too many pics...I have 24,000 city photos, plus the 3000 that I've taken on my own!

Really classy selection of vintage pics Allan. I know it takes a long time to pick choice pics to post (or at least a good representation), so thanks.

LOL @ Lurline :D

You're lucky. I've only been there one time, but it is an awesome city, and definately is one of my all time favorites.

What a lovely piece of memorabilia. The architecture on most of those structures was mouthwatering.

Breathtaking, a lost Paradise. If the rest of bumpkin America had known how beautiful California was, they'd have all moved there.
