Jewel City Photo: Musical Silhouettes

Composite of several shots taken on California between Brand and Orange. The City seal is from a bus stop on Broadway. The silhouettes look almost like Tintin.

*here's the piano girl.  Artist Michael Daedalus Kenny points out that the silhouettes appear to be in the style of 1920's illustrator John Held, Jr.

Actually, this looks like characters from John Held Jr.'s comic strips and magazine illustrations:
He's credited for defining the flapper girl.

There's a girl with a piano around the corner, near Tep Thai.
