Technically it's been over a year, but since our first Sunday Drive was last Easter, I think today should mark the Anniversary.
It's a flawless spring day in Santa Monica, and so my thoughts naturally turn to vintage signs. Neon, of course, but also backlit translucent plastic, especially the vacuum formed shapes that were so the rage in the sixties.
Our destination today is Pico Boulevard, Named for Pio Pico, the last Mexican Governor of California. Technically Pico would be 13th Boulevard, and runs just south of Olympic from the Ocean all the to the fashion District downtown. We're driving the Santa Monica and West Los Angeles sections, looking for icons that are hiding in plain sight.
Can you think of a better way to spend an Easter Sunday?
