Saturday, December 22, 2007 At the Crossroads

Christmas weekend at the Crossroads of the World, at least the one on Sunset Boulevard, next to the Church of the Blessed Sacrament the first Catholic Church in Hollywood (1904) and the parish church for Irene Dunne and Loretta Young, and where Bing Crosby married his first wife (Dixie Lee) in September 1930. It's old Hollywood and things are in bloom.
