'L' is for "Los ..." & "Lincoln ..." (abc Wednesday)

Join Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC Wednesday Round 4!

The old Los Angeles theatre on Broadway St. in Downtown L.A. See more views from Broadway Street on my Mostly LA County blog.

UPDATE: Los Angeles Theater, 1931; S. Charles Lee - architect; 615 S. Broadway; "A Baroque motion-picture palace. Twin Corinthina columns frame the central notched arch. Above, a varied skyscraper is provided with pinnacles and other sculptured forms. The interior grand staircases and rich decorations is as French Second Empire as the street facade. Probably the finest theater building in Los Angeles."

THE Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC. (Photo by my son - I.C.B. - with his cell phone.)

Hi Tash,great pics! Los Angeles has some cool old buildings. I wish that I would have taken pictures when I lived in the area. Have you been inside the theater? That would be some nice pictures.
Thanks for sharing your photos.

That is an incredible building! And the picture of Lincoln taken on a phone is pretty good, too - it's quite amazing what nice pictures they can take in the right hands!
