Sister Cities

A column of world city names point to their locations in miles; they are the Sister Cities to Los Angeles (click photo to enlarge).

Fans of the 1960s TV show, Dragnet, will recognize Los Angeles City Hall in the distance. For many years, the 1928, iconic structure towered above all other buildings in the area. It still remains the tallest base isolated structure in the world.

Love that signpost!

I have to smile when I read how it achieves its "world best" plaudits. We do that here in Australia too - narrow the field down and down until we are best in the world at whatever!

Nice memories of Dragnet ...

I remember a Huell Howser program about the City Hall retrofit. It was an amazing job. I just love the building, I think it's gorgeous. But I've never been inside, have you?
