  1. Perfect. I so enjoy seeing the photos of historical buildings. Isn't it an amazing door.
    I don't know if you've run across this blog
    but Mr. Bariscale is taking photos & posting all the City of LA (including Pedro) historical landmarks. Very fun to learn about buildings that you may have seen many times and wondered about.


So nice to hear from you!

Warm regards,
