Lost in the Past (34 images)
Los Angeles tries to erase its past, tearing down anything more than a decade old and replacing it with something new that will be torn down itself soon enough - but the past lives on in architectural detail that slips by. It catches your eye everywhere, like at the odd Royal Carlton, at 5611 Carlton Way in East Hollywood at Saint Andrews Place, from 1930, and all the other odd detailing from Hollywood out to Santa Monica. The past lives on. It's very persistent.
