Wait, what? What’s happening here?
Looking west on Culver Boulevard, Culver City, 1929.
Ah, the sleepy hamlet of Culver. Far removed from the rest of Los Angeles. It is here that people go about their daily lives with quiet dignity, waving good-morning to the mayor in his garden, reading the funnies on the porch, wondering idly if the new Sears, Roebuck & Co. calalog will be arriving this week or the next. Yes, I ‘spect life will be much the same here in Culver for quite some time.
