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 ó 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.
New 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.
