Rolls With The Punches

If you didn't know me, and I showed you the picture below, would there be any question in your mind as to where I lived?




 
 Strip Mall Rolls


LA, I love it 'cause I can't afford to leave it!
Oh, and of course the Rolls had a handicap placard.

Is this photo from Playa Vista? On the way to Venice beach right?

Believe it or not, it's the corner of Wilshire and Highland!

Well of course you'd believe it as there's only about 10,000 of these two-story strip malls in the LA basin.

True true, this looks just like one by friends apartment in Playa; I assumed there could only be so many acupuncture clinic-subways in the same structure...how wrong I was!

Dr. Midas (just so you know)(in true 'only in LA fashion') has a double storefront. One side is acupuncture the other side is a botox/restyline clinic! East, apparently, does meet West.

My guess is that Prince von Fakenstein is taking Zsa Zsa out for a sammich.

yes, my first thought went directly to the zsa as well, but upon reflection, i imagine her driving around in something a bit more vintage. perhaps the rolls she was driving (in '89) when she slapped the patrolman? is this a corniche?

Truth be told - I just dribbled a wee bit when I laughed at this post and your comment. Good gawd! I left ALL of my stuff in the care of my family. I had to get out of there {L.A.}.

I was going to guess the location at Sunset and Cresent Heights. There are sooo many things wrong in that photo. That's Hollywood
