Silver Lake to Angelino Heights, part 2

Continuing from yesterday’s story, my son and I arrived at Carroll Avenue in Angelino Heights, and walked the neighborhood. Getting out of your car is mandatory for the full effect. If you’re like me, exploring all the streets, choosing favorite architecture, pretending the place is your own…. Well, it’s a fascinating place, and even more so because the wrecking ball and “progress” haven’t destroyed it. And won’t! Thankfully, many homes will be saved for future generations, having been designated historic monuments.Silver Lake to Angelino Heights, part 2 (18)

Restoration is an ongoing project, with what I’m sure are large sums being invested restoring each home to its original state. The variety in styles, along with all the photos I took, has prompted me to create several separate articles over the next several days. Enjoy a walk back through time, in the present! The final photo in this gallery expresses my sentiment, as well! ~SueBee (photos by SueBee) Click on any photo to open gallery!

    I love these kind of houses with the front porches. They don’t make them like this anymore. And where I live, they don’t make them like this at all.

      Aren’t they gorgeous?!! Sadly, as you said, they don’t make them like that anymore. Tract houses are about as dull and cookie cutter as it gets.

      Thanks for visiting our blog, and for commenting, Gail!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
