First, thank you for all your responses.
Although I thought I made it clear (more than once) this was no particular city or area, everyone’s guesses assumed Pasadena & the South of Pasadena. Well, this bookstore did originate, way back in the day, in Pasadena.
But, the photo is inside SkyLight Books on Vermont in Los Feliz, a neighborhood of Los Angeles. Prior ownership used the name Chatterton’s. Either way, this is one of the finer indie bookstores, like our great Vroman’s here, and has been a neighborhood anchor there for many a year.
Laurie, and I, have some history hanging around this bookstore dating back into the last century! However, it’s been quite a while since she visited the place, but I was there just a few months ago to take a few shots for her viewing pleasure.
If you’re looking for more history, Pasadena style, check out The Old Pasadena Blog. They have a good one currently.
Ok, enuf about books & the past. Now, gotta think about some more important things like…food & cafe’s!
