What The Camera Saw / The Week And More

September 01, 1998

ECHOES OF HISTORY

Southern California is notoriously lacking in tangible evidence of its history. The Victorians of Bunker Hill are gone, the original Pickfair has been bulldozed, and even the Hollywood sign is a condensed version of what it once was. But if you look closely, you'll catch glimpses of the past. Freddy Valadez relives the zoot suit era as he prepares for the stage play "El Pachuco 1943." And the station house of the Angels Flight incline railway stands as a silent sentinel in downtown Los Angeles. Tony Alvis, who leads pack trips through Los Padres National Forest, heads into camp at the end of the day.

BEACH SEEN

The beaches seem, at times, to be one long sports venue. Surfers veer too close to one another at the G-Shock U.S. Open in Huntington Beach, and Emanuel Rego dives for the ball at the Assn. of Volleyball Professionals Open at Seal Beach.
