* My Trip to Los Angeles in 1963 *

In 1963, one year after I had moved to Saint Joseph, Missouri I bought a nice little 1963 Buick Skylark... A Friend had recently Moved to Los Angeles and I thought a Visit there would be a good Start for my new Car

Seemed like the Longest part of the trip was the boring drive across Kansas

But through the Mountains of Colorado the Scenery improved some

Well we are in Colorado, how about a climb up Pikes Peak?

Here looking down on the road on the way up


And looking up to the top, the little Buick actually made it

And looking back down the Cog Railroad

At last in Los Angeles to see some of the Sights

I saw a lot of them but only got Photos of a few

Here the famous Grauman's Chinese Theater


The noted Dome of the Pacific Cinerama Theater

I watched the Movie... It's Mad Mad Mad World while there

Several actors that were in the Movie were sitting close and acting up!


A visit to the Hollywood Bowl, empty and nothing going on
And not too good a Photo either

A Visit to the Griffith Observatory

and I watched their 'Stellar' presentation

This place was seen in the Movie 'Rebel without a Cause'... (remember?)


Dorandos Restaurant and Bar...
Not too many will remember this place

Across the Street from the original 'Tonight Show' Studio when Steve Allen was Host

My friend and I had Dinner there, sitting at the next Table and putting on a real 'SHOW" were Dan Rowan and Dick Martin the Stars of the 'Laugh In' TV Show

(That's my Buick in Front)


Then on to Anaheim California to Disneyland

I started at Disneyland of Course, and I think I finished at Knotts Berry Farm

And I made a Web Page of most the Photos I took at Knotts Berry Farm

And then I thought, how a Web Page of some of the Photos at Disneyland... so here they are




Here the Man is snipping out Silhouettes of the people that come in
He made one for me... Wonder where that is now?















And so, I had 101 Photos but some were just not good enough to add here
So I'll say Adios at the Front Gate for now
