Pasadena’s Department of Water and Power Glenarm Steam Plant was built 104 years ago when our region was just finding its industrial groove.

Just Next Door…

San Marino may be the official city of the Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens, but South Pasadena is so close it feels like our very own backyard garden. Our very own biiiiiiig backyard garden!

Tiny Sophisticates

Tiny Sophisticates

Oh, the kids are growing up before our very eyes! Here, a group of soon-to-be-second-graders cut up for my camera on a year end field trip to the Los Angeles Museum of Natural History. And to think, just a few years ago all those taxidermy animals would have elicited tears and nightmares from the little [...]

Tucked Away in the Big City

Tucked Away in the Big City

South Pasadena’s small town oasis makes it easy to lose track of the fact we’re located smack dab in the middle of Los Angeles’ urban jungle. (Well, okay, not in the middle exactly. More like up around the northeast end.) Just minutes from downtown LA, South Pasadena conceivably could have been where J.J. Gittes could [...]
