It's a Hollywood thing. Old buildings look best in the rain – Bullocks Wilshire, 3050 Wilshire Boulevard, 1929, by the Los Angeles architects John and Donald Parkinson – the ultimate Art Deco luxury department store for more than sixty years, now a private law school. But the exterior has been restored to its original glory, and on a rare rainy day in Los Angeles, it is evocative of another time and another world. ~ Thursday, December 6, 2018
