It's a shame about the Pike development. It's a nice place, but it can't seem to attract enough business owners to fill all those vacancies. I was afraid that was going to happen to that old rooftop.

It's been 5 years since I started the Photos Of The Forgotten website. I decided to do a book to honor the occasion. "Postcards From Anaheim" is the result. It's a retro-licious look at the hotels, motels & inns surrounding Disneyland in Anaheim, California though the images of vintage...

I did go there in May like I said and was a bit disappointed. The games were great but the place smelled foul and was not a place I wanted to spend too much time in.

Wow those are incredible! It's good to see places that are not in such a hurry to lose their unique character and replace it with just another Starbucks or Walgreens or any other major chain. I need to get up there.

There was a great Huell Howser episode where he visits Felix Chevrolet and gets the whole story behind the dealership and sign. They go up on the roof and you get some nice close-up views of the sign.
