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.
