Echo Park Holidays

We may not have Frank Sinatra oozing out of public speakers, making us feel all romantic and ready to buy -- the way Rodeo Drive shopping district does. In Echo Park I would propose Los Abandoned or Bert Jansch should we be so silly as to install speakers on lightpoles. And, in any case, we already have lots of public music coming out of garages and car windows. But Echo Park does not lack for Holiday Spirit, as the photo above illustrates. What you see (a couple of weeks ago) is a vintage Citroen, which was one of two vehicles representing the Echo Park Historical Society. Behind the slight glare of the windshield is Historical Society members waving at you. This is Sunset Boulevard. Three days after the holiday, the lights are still up all around the neighborhood; the vibe is subdued. We welcomed the rain yesterday early morning.

Rodeo Drive? I can explain.
