Replying to comment by Freddie Rios on The Four Newest Vernacular Photographs in My Collection.

Hello, I know this was posted 2 years ago, but I justed wanted to tell you that the photo titled “A woman inspects a swan” from your collection is located in Glendale, CA not far from my home in Los Angeles. It is located at a memorial park called Forest Lawn Memorial Park. It is part of a chain of cemeteries around southern California that is privately owned.

If you enter these coordinates into Google maps “34.125443,-118.253134,” then use the street view option, you should be able to see the fountain depicted in your found photo.

I worked at the Hollywood hills location from around 2002-2005, and the cemeteries have been part of my life growing up, family, and friends being interred there. I hope you enjoyed this tidbit as I have enjoyed what you share with us. Thanks.
