Monday, March 15, 2010 At MacArthur Park

It was time to visit MacArthur Park again, for the details this time. The last time, three or four years ago, was with the amateur camera. But what's around the park is what catches your eye, like the Asbury

This seems to be former Union Army lieutenant colonel Harrison Gray Otis in 1884 he bought out the Los Angeles Times and its printing company from the Mirror Company to form the Times-Mirror Company, and his newspaper empire made the city what it is, so he's supposed to be here.

Of course General MacArthur is here too. It's his park.
