A Warm Feeling On Wilshire

A brisk December evening in Los Angeles probably isn't as "brisk" as most other places in the country at the same moment. Still, it can get pretty cold there, but this beautiful holiday scene is guaranteed to provide a warm feeling.

The building in the background is one of the great landmarks of 20th Century retail architecture - the May Company store at the corner of L.A.'s "Miracle Mile", Wilshire Boulevard, and Fairfax Avenue. Opened in 1939, it operated as May Co. until that company's merger with J.W. Robinson's in 1992. The building now houses the newly-opened Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, its stunning Art Deco corner facade joyfully intact.
