Friday, March 28, 2008 Deep Under Glass

The past is under glass on Main Street in the Ocean Park area of Santa Monica, like these cardboard busses that might remind you of Keanu Reeves, Dennis Hopper, Sandra Bullock and that 1994 movie about the Santa Monica bus with the bomb onboard, Speed. Or they might not.

The Douglas DC-3 was designed and built in Santa Monica. A few are still flying.  Some sit in a shop window.

This isn't New Jersey. The Hindenburg still flies.

Note: Santa Monica is not Paris, and this is not 1900 no way.
