In Need of a Smile...

Pictured here is a photo taken by Margaret Chute, in 1929. Margaret was a British journalist & novelist whose work appeared in numerous magazine & newspaper publications in London. In 1926, Margaret resided here at the Gaylord, while on assignment to write about Hollywood.

I found this photo in Taschen's "A Thousand Hounds" and immediately recognized Margaret's name from our Gaylord archives. The pair in the photo were most likely, judging by their exaggerated expressions, some film starlet & trained companion, but unfortunately they were not credited in the book. They remain a mystery, but how perfectly wonderful this photo is!

Typical Gaylord Day...

This morning in the Gaylord lobby, I find our Kelly with one of his more illustrious friends. These creative types are always so expressive and we welcome them.

Local Merchant...

This past weekend after constant recommendation from our Lana, I finally paid a visit to McManus & Morgan, Inc, over on 7th Street, just west of MacArthur Park, at 2506 W. 7th St. Established in 1923, one year before the Gaylord opened it's doors, this shop has been serving the Los Angeles artistic community for 95 years now. Fine art papers, stationery, used books & lots of good stories from Gary, the owner who has been the proprietor for some 50 years. Next door you will find a "real" printmaking shop called Aardvark Letterpress with a remarkable history also. The building alone these shops are in is a work of art.

After making my purchases on a variety of items, I finally got why Lana kept after me on this one. Go and support your local merchants & explore!
