Tuesday, April 13, 2010 Odd Echoes

If you're really old you remember the Beatles singing We All Live in a Yellow Submarine and maybe remember that Ringo Starr tune Octopus's Garden. So here you go at Echo Park Lake, on the stairs at Glendale Boulevard at Kent, the Yellow Submarine in the Octopus's Garden

The setting - Echo Park Lake the Los Angeles Canal and Reservoir Co. formed Reservoir No. 4 in 1868, but it has been repurposed. The fellow in the porthole is staring at the old Spanish-style boathouse across the lake, with the fake lighthouse. The old Saint Athanasius church from 1890 cross the street was demolished and replaced by the massive Episcopal headquarters in the background. But the giant Angelus Temple from 1923 founded by the evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson is nearby. That's for another day.
