Today Hubby Dearest and I took a tour with the Art Deco Society of Los Angeles exploring the streets around Hollywood Boulevard and the treasure trove of Art Deco architecture it has. We were able to go into the Egyptian Theater and the lobby of the Hollywood Museum, but unfortunately we couldn’t get into the Pantages, which is what I was really wanting to see. I saw they had omitted it on the tour description and was just hoping it was a typo. Alas, this time around the theater couldn’t accommodate the tour. I guess I’ll just have to go to the next one, as the Pantages is just delicious inside.
While the overcast weather made for pleasant walking, it made all of our photos rather flat. But below are some of the snapshots we took to showcase a few of the little details you miss as you speed by.
And lastly, we ventured once again into the Hollywood Museum, which used to be the Max Factor Building. We paid a little extra to see the whole museum, as I hadn’t seen the Jean Harlow or the Lucille Ball at 100 exhibits. I was also able to get some clearer photos of the makeup displays – an interest of mine.
We also toured Grauman’s Chinese Theater separately, but I’ll cover that in another post. I think I’ve taxed your photo viewing indulgence a bit with this one.
