This vintage car gathering that came up next on our Roku is pretty neat, too - the little sage-green Chevy pickup truck at about 1:28 looks fantastic:

And even pop music was beautiful.

I wonder what the neighborhoods from the video look like today.

We were just saying that back then, in most cities there was a little shop for everything - tobacco, leather goods, mens’ suits, shoes, books. Malls killed that; and the Internet is killing the malls.

I don’t know LA, but if the neighborhood is good, it’s probably all sleek metal and glass now, and not nearly as interesting.

All I can think of upon seeing this posting is how much I hated the movie Chinatown. 131 minutes of my life that I will never get back.

Noteworthy is the amount of trash on the streets.

LOL! I’ve never seen it, so I guess no time wasted.

Noteworthy for the lack? I saw almost none.

The other day I was reading some article that claimed that Dunkin Donuts and Mister Donut, both Boston area chaids founded in the 1950s, started the use of changing the spelling of doughnut to donut. And yet at 1:32 in this film from 1946 L.A. there is the Mayflower Donut shop.

Moral: take articles you read, even on unimportant topics, with a grain of salt.

There is a ton of litter along the curbs. Look again.

Yeah, I notice one corner.

I wish it were slower so you could see more detail.

LA Noire is a great PS game. Based in the 40’s and the graphics are the best. https://youtu.be/jeYym1U226M

Agreed. It sucked. Why some people rave about it baffles me.

“Noteworthy for the lack? I saw almost none.”

Watch again. Many scenes showed trash in the streets.
