Add this one to the already interminable list of Los Angeles photogroups: LA Locksmith Shacks. Here you can post all of your many photos of locksmith shacks in the Los Angeles area.
Losanjealous Ryan gives more background on these shacks:
Locksmiths are required by law to operate out of craptastic shacks in the corners of parking lots unless eligible for exemption as defined by Form 33LK.
New locksmith shack building applications must include documented proof that proposed shack location falls within designated shack-zoned area as defined in Shack Bylaw #3-A4b. Refer to Supplement Form 2A.
