Sculpture - Paragon At Old Town


And the answer to Friday's teaser. This is the new sculpture on the corner of Myrtle and Olive Avenues. It is inspired by the old Red Cars that were very popular here in the early 1900's.

Why a Red Car? Check this out:

The largest apartments in the development are named "Huntington" after Henry Huntington. Henry Huntington established the Pacific Electric Railway, also known as the Red Cars. The site of the Paragon development is on the former site of the Monrovia Red Car station.

Pretty cool.

This photo was taken prior to the ribbon cutting, that's why the landscaping is not quite complete yet.

I like the idea of a teaser. I don't think I'll know any answers but I still like it.

Petrea: This one was difficult. Maybe I should add prizes!
a strange piece. It references accordians, telephone booths, fire trucks and red cars
