Found on EBay: Pershing Square Cannon

March 4, 2010 |  6:05 pm


You may recall a post I did last year on Pershing Square’s missing cannon, which vanished after being moved to Travel Town in Griffith Park. Here’s a 1905 postcard showing the cannon, which has been listed on EBay. Bidding starts at $2. And don’t you think Pershing Square (or Central Park, as it was known before World War I) was far more attractive a century ago before it was converted into a moonscape to repel the homeless?
