Last month, when we visited the Los Angeles Central Public Library we called into the gift shop which is near the main entrance. The store has an interesting collection of stuff that will entertain kids and adults. We picked up a copy of “Secret Stairs– A walking guide to the historic staircases of Los Angeles” by Charles Fleming and published by Santa Monica Press. This collection of walks with maps takes in many interesting parts of Los Angeles that tourists don’t usually see.
We did walk no 19 in Silver Lake, on Sunset Boulevard, which began with this set of stairs painted to look like a piano keyboard.
