Main Street

November 10, 2007 |  6:21 am

Photography wasn't allowed in certain spots on the L.A. Conservancy's Mainly Main tour, so I didn't take many pictures. A crew was setting up for a private party in St. Vibiana's where all photography was banned, and the penthouse at the Pacific Electric Lofts was dressed for a shoot (I think it was "24") so no pictures were permitted. We also went into Edison, but the light levels were so low that I would never get decent pictures in there with my camera.

Here are a couple of snaps heading south:

This is next to the old Linda Lee Theater, where "Seven Samurai" had its Los Angeles premiere.

Here's the King's Market at 5th Street. I wasn't sure at first, but I believe these are the same style street lamps found in the frame grab from "The Street With No Name" (1948).

These pictures will give you an idea of the details in the National City Lofts. Unfortunately, the stained-glass dome has been removed.

My friend Carlos Lozano and I wandered into the Hotel Cecil and I snapped this shot of the stained glass in the ceiling.
