Canadian tourists stop at 1940 World’s Fair site.
Tourists come from all over the world to stroll along Ocean Front Walk in Venice CA. The most popular section is from the Santa Monica Pier down to Venice Blvd. If you stroll further south towards Washington Blvd. and the Venice Pier, you will (if you look at the beachfront homes) see one that claims it has “the world’s smallest front yard.” We saw it recently and took some photos.
Many years ago, in Ripley’s “Believe It or Not,” we read about a guy who over the course of his lifetime, had found an example of every one of the cards in a deck of cards. We will not try to duplicate that feat. We took a photo of this card, but that’s it. We don’t intend on spending the rest of our life taking photos of the various solo playing cards we spot.
Film heads can only envy the young folks today who can take digital photos in dark places with no problems (really?) but back in the day “available light” photography was a challenge. We found this snapshot while researching the topic of snapshot collecting. We have no idea who took it. Where. or When.
We may write a column on it just for a change of pace topic.
