Then you’ll love the Lost Los Angeles channel on YouTube that my friend KT just alerted me to. It’s an amazing collection of old LA videos that show streets and buildings of our fair city as they appeared earlier in the last century, some with narration and some without, but all pretty great.

    Love this and wish I had an hour to get lost in it RIGHT NOW!Panza’s Lazy Susan, shown around 00:40, was located at 1300 N La Brea (at Fountain), according to this: http://www.flickr.com/photos/petermartorano/5364358205

    So, northbound past Melrose or so on La Brea. Looks so familiar and yet quite different.
