Let’s go downstairs first, shall we? This stairway leads down from the room just north of the Reference Desk at the east end of the Main Hall at Pasadena’s Central Library. At the bottom you arrive in a public area where there are 30 or so (or more) computers available for public use. Just beyond that […]

When it comes to Pasadena’s Central Library, there might be no better tour guide than Dan McLaughlin, Librarian, Archivist and Pasadena historian. Lucky me, I asked him for a tour and he said yes. He even held my book, Act As If, when I took his picture. (Which I did not ask him to do but […]

Behind the Scenes

This combination lock opens a door to a stairway that most Pasadenish have not climbed. Yet many of us have walked past this door. Where do you suppose we are? Here’s another clue.

The Cravens Estate

The Cravens Estate

I did some volunteer work for the Pasadena Museum of History and they invited me to their volunteer meeting at the Cravens Estate. Nice digs. The Cravens Estate was built in 1930 for John S. and Mildred Cravens. It was a headquarters of the Red Cross for some years, but is no longer. It might […]

Mt. Wilson Observatory Hideout IV: Farewell for Now

Mt. Wilson Observatory Hideout IV: Farewell for Now

Last night’s blood moon brought crowds to the Mt. Wilson Observatory. The parking lot is always open and it’s a good spot for viewing the night skies. The Observatory itself closes to the public at 5pm but last night the staff left the gate open and people wandered, enjoying the grounds. Despite all the light […]

Mt. Wilson Observatory Hideout III: the Monastery

This was my first view of the Monastery at Mt. Wilson Observatory. Compare it to this photo.  Here’s how to orient yourself to it: I took this from near the front door, looking between the main building and the cottage. The pooch in the linked photo was standing beside that chimney, behind the van. No. […]

Mt. Wilson Observatory Hideout II

I kept getting up from my dinner last night to photograph the sunset. I finally had to stop because I was hungry. My kitchen window at my Mt. Wilson hideout looks out over Pasadena and Altadena, to the west of where I sit. I’m fortunate to have a weekend getaway in a cabin at Mt. […]
