B.LA Mystery Photo Contest / Vol. 1, No. 8

It didn’t take long at all for Cynthia Ashford to chime in with the answer to last week’s mystery photo subject. “This looks like the Hotel California sign on the property next to the fountain at Los Feliz Blvd. and Riverside,” she wrote. The signs are indeed situated on Riverside Drive south of the Mulholland fountain. But in the interest of fairness and accuracy and to dispel any connection to the classic Eagles album, the signs (there are two of them) read “Hotel Californian.”

Clue: What with it being Memorial Day weekend I was thinking of posting an image snapped somberly at the Los Angeles National Cemetery in Westwood (where I’ll be headed later today to pay my respects), but instead I decided to offer an image of a memorial that’s a bit off the beaten path รณ Elysian Park to be less vague. Installed at an L.A. City Fire Department training facility not far at all from Dodger Stadium, it was unveiled last September to serve as a west coast commemoration. To what? You tell me.

UPDATE (June 6): This contest is closed.

tinytush.jpgNew Rules (as of 5.31): The more the merrier, right? Instead of the first one to correctly identify the location and subject of the above image winning, I’m going to beta test the random selection of a winner who will be selected the following Sunday from all the correct entries and who will win the admiration of the blogging.la readership (or me, whichever’s greater at the time) and a collector’s edition Tush sticker printed with real ink and made with real adhesive. In the event of no one getting it right, the creator of the most entertaining guess will be hailed victorious.

  1. How could no one be guessing on this? It makes me sad to see that. Of course I can’t play this time around because I was with you when you took the photo.

    Will, did you take another photo of this? One at a lower angle … maybe an additional view would help some folks.

  2. I remember the day they had the ceremony to put it in. It is a beam from the World Trade Center, in honor of all those who lost their lives, especially the firemen and police. God bless em.

  3. I know, I’m sure all of Blogging.LA hates me.

    But I just wanted to know, from your perspective, if Jay’s OK…
