March 13, 2017: Since I started Gem City Images way back in 2007, the photos posted here have been (almost) exclusively of Monrovia. All my other photos have been posted to various social media sites like Flickr, Instagram and Facebook.

While that seemed like a good idea, in reality it led to a lack of consistency that was frustrating for me and made it hard to follow along with the latest photos.

So, starting now, Gem City Images will no longer be exclusively Monrovia. If you still want to see Monrovia only, you can always click the "Monrovia" label on the right side but hopefully you'll follow along for the whole experience.

Even though Gem City Images refers to Monrovia, I decided to keep that as the blog name. No matter where I go, The Gem City is where it all started.

Aztec Hotel Front View


I posted a somewhat similar, but from an angle, photo of the front entrance to the Aztec Hotel back on April 14th.  This one is a straight on shot looking in the front door.

The Aztec Hotel has been in the news recently and I won't pretend to know or understand all the details or intricacies of the situation.  I just hope that, since the Aztec is such a fascinating place with a rich history, everything works out for the best in the end.  I'd hate to see the historic Aztec Hotel become just a memory.

I haven't read the article yet but I'm sure this is on the register of historic places (and all other registers). Laurie did an interesting article on the Rialto Theater in South Pas. In profit hungry America, when something doesn't earn it's keep, they'll put in something ugly (more often then not) that will.
