Sorry I’m a day late with this week’s contest, but I just flew back in from a weekend spent RVing from Reno to Redding to Dunsmuir and back, and boy is my witty repartee just this side of tired… so whatsay I just quit the chit and get on with it. This week’s winner to last week’s contest is “RMONT!” who claims the coveted Tush sticker by being the first to tell everyone that last week’s mystery photo subject was of “…the tibute to Anthony Quinn at the Victor Clothing Company on Boardway [sic] in Downtown Los Angeles ó ‘The Pope of Broadway’ it is named.” I’d love to be able to throw stickers to fellow contestants “RFW” who came who came in afterward with the building’s exact location at 242 Broadway, and “KM” who followed up with the fact that the mural can be viewed best from 3rd Street, but I’m running low on stickers so only one this time ’round.
Clue: I’ve been driving and biking by the caged and slowly decaying subject of this week’s image (click it to pop-up a larger version) , which has languished outdoors for mad years and so deserves to restored and lifted up where it belongs (note to self: add “Officer and a Gentleman” to Netflix queue).
Rules: First one to post a comment most correctly and directly listing the location of the photo subject above wins 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.
