MacArthur Park Today - Westlake Park and the Chancellor Hotel

Here is MacArthur Lake Park today, known to my Grandfather Glessner and mom, Peg Glessner as West Lake Park. The tall white building in the back was known as the Elks Temple on the M Kashower Co Los Angeles Post Card that Len Glessner sent to his son, Harry C Glessner in 1929.

Here is the Hotel Chancellor at 7th and Berendo, not far from Wilshire and Vermont. I walked here from West Lake AKA MacArthur Park today on a bright and sunny day. Here is where my Grandfather Glessner stayed in 1929 when he wrote a card to his daughter Margaret who was then an 18 yr old freshman at Oberlin College in Ohio. Today it has been converted into a condo.

  2. Translation for the comments:

    1. Tell yourself what I really want and make efforts to realize it step by step.

    2. The one who gives up can never win; the one who won sticks to doing something.

    3. Weak person is limited by surroundings, while the wise makes most of disadvantaged situations.
