State Parks, Historic Sites, and Museums need your help.

Throughout the country, state parks, historic sites, museums, and similar institutions are struggling to continue operating. Because of general financial problems, many of these institutions are operating on a reduced schedule or in danger of closing. Some are being forced to sell off artifacts and property. Many will not weather these hard times without your help.

Places Earth urges everyone to support these vital and important public resources any way you can. Please donate your treasure, time, and talent. Write to your governor and other elected officials telling them to find a way to keep state parks open. It will be your loss.

While not significant architecture in the eyes of some, this type of Goggies architectural was once quite common, but sadly, most is now gone. Johnie's Coffee Shop Restaurant sits on the northwest corner of Wilshire and Fairfax near Miracle Mile. Built in 1955 by architects Armet & Davis as Romeo's Times Square restaurant. Now closed (since2000), it is often used as a filming location. Now owned by 99 Cent Only stores, Los Angeles Conservancy is working for its preservation. Location: 6101 Wilshire Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90048

Support this Web Site

I hope that you find this web site helpful. It started because of my love for Architecture and interest in History. I don't allow paid advertising (but this may change). This web site is for your benefit and enjoyment and I make no profit on it. For ten years it has been supported primarily from my regular paycheck as a Set Designer and there haven't been many the last few years. I can no longer run it without help. Alternative funding is needed. A non-tax deductable donation helps cover the cost of operating this web site and may be made to Kesign Design Consulting through PayPal.
