About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

Greek Freak

I love seeing shows at the Greek Theatre. It's like the Hollywood Bowl, but much smaller & more intimate. My fave was Stevie Ray Vaughn in the '80s.
It's also right up the hill from Los Feliz, which still affects a pretty righteous prewar vibe.

Gaieties at the Greek Theater

Perhaps it meant each chorine is so close to being a girl already you can't tell the difference, mostly.

"Mostly Girls"?

I'm not sure I really want to know what the rest of them were!
