Tuesday, April 6, 2010 Competing Eras

There are too many architectural pasts out here, and two of them bump into each other down on Wilshire Boulevard's Miracle Mile, roughly the stretch of Wilshire from the big museums at Fairfax east to La Brea. In the 5400 block of Wilshire Boulevard one side of the street has Spanish Colonial or Mission Revival stuff left over from the early twenties, with all sorts of lavish Churrigueresque decoration, and the other side of Wilshire has the restored and repurposed Streamline Moderne buildings from the thirties. It's Harold Lloyd and the silent comedies on one side of the street, and the Astaire-Rogers "white telephone" musicals on the other or Fritz Lang and that Metropolis thing. This is the local Staples store
