Matt Weinstock, Aug. 15, 1959



Aug. 15, 1959, Matt Weinstock


Matt Weinstock is going on vacation! He'll be back Sept. 7, 1959, and 2009.

Note: Devon McReynolds, the Daily Mirror's UCLA intern, is off to Paris. Until our next intern starts in September, the Daily Mirror won't be able to transcribe Paul Coates or Matt Weinstock. Rather than discontinue the columns, we'll be posting them as image files. Because of the way Typepad handles images, the thumbnails are murky, but the full-size images are readable.

Lunch With Larry and Keith, Aug. 15


Philippe the Original
Larry Harnisch/Los Angeles Times

I always assume Daily Mirror readers are familiar with Philippe. It's at 1001 N. Alameda, just north of Union Station.
We had so much fun at our last Daily Mirror lunch at Philippe that Keith and I decided to do it again. We're shooting for noon on Aug. 15 in the mass transit alcove (that's the train room) at Philippe. Stop by and chat about your favorite mystery photo, Paul Coates, the Dodgers, the Angels and the Hollywood Stars. 

Update: Marion Eisenmann, who is doing the terrific drawings of Los Angeles landmarks, says she plans to join us.

To Our Readers:

As you have noticed, The Times'  website has been redesigned, and that includes The Daily Mirror. The elements that used to be on the right rail are gone, including Sid Hughes' badge and many of the links. We have a tag cloud (very useful as all our posts get tagged), and the links to the archives have been changed to a drop-down menu for a much cleaner presentation.

Please remember that this is a work in progress. More links are going to be added to the right rail in the future (like the blog-o-rama).

In the meantime, bookmark The Daily Mirror (latimes.com/dailymirror) and keep up with us on Facebook  and Twitter.


Here's a quick link to the archives, arranged by week.

And this is a handy tool for searching The Daily Mirror back to April 2007.

Update: In response to readers' requests, here's the information from our old sidebar:

Artist's Notebook -- Union Station



2009_0808_union_station_thumb

Union Station by Marion Eisenmann, Aug, 8, 2009

Marion sends her impressions of Union Station, the crossroads for countless travelers since it opened in 1939. Think of how many people have rushed through the station to catch their train -- and how many more have spent tedious hours waiting to leave or anxiously anticipating someone's arrival. The nation no longer travels by rail as it once did, but I still feel a spirit of adventure whenever I see the sign: "TO TRAINS."

Marion writes: This place is interesting, what I mean by it are its visuals, sound 
and situations. Back in Germany I commuted a lot by train, I am glad I only joined these people on their wait, for a quick sketch, I then took the Metro home. I like the acoustic, the cave-like shelter and cool.

Note: In case you just tuned in, Marion and I are visiting local landmarks in a project inspired by what Charles Owens and Joe Seewerker did in Nuestro Pueblo. Check back next week for another page from Marion's notebook. In the meantime, you can contact Marion here.
