San Gabriel Valley Modern
On Sunday we toured the San Gabriel Valley with many of our friends from the Modern Committee of the L.A. Conservancy. This was a special tour organized and arranged by Chris and Charlene Nichols. Chris grew up in the SGV, so he was the PERFECT tour guide. We met in Little Tokyo at 10:30 a.m. and proceeded to Pasadena.

We concentrated on mid-20th century architecture of the 1950's-1970's. We stopped at a few places and received mini-lectures about various buildings and their architectural beginnings. Some of the highlights:
