Queen Victoria Diamond Jubilee Portrait
|There are many photographs on view of which none are permitted to be reproduced which, of course, is correct.|
Please go see this exhibition and delight in the interior view of this family. The Queen produced nine children.

There are 3 major condo projects going up between Highland and Wilcox Avenue. There are dozens of independent film, sound and digital companies in the neighborhood, and Paramount Studios and Raleigh Studios, and a farmer's market on Sunday.
There is Larchmont Boulevard with it's spas and banks and restaurants and retail stores, and there is the beacon - THE EL ROYALE - the 1927 Los Angeles Icon by architect William Douglas Lee that lights up each night at dusk in green neon script and can be seen from every direction.
Downtown is booming and east of La Brea has it's gold stars: MARINO - It's a great place to have lunch in a quiet setting with delicious food.
Mario sources the line caught cold water fish, the grass fed meat and the fresh organic vegetables. Carmelo at Pane Pane delivers the bread as he has for 29 years, and I let Mario choose the wine because he knows so much about it.
Listed on Eater & Yelp & Zagat rated at 25 food and called "a local treasure."
The down side? Never on Sunday.
