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.

Closed - The Pottery Ranch


The shelves are empty and the doors are locked.  Next up, demolition and a new Jack In The Box. Would you like fries with that?

Mon-Arc Center - Before And After


Let's start with the "after" view.  The large building on the right is the former Super A supermarket. Ready for a new tenant to come in and fix up the interior to suit their needs.  Interesting that there is currently no "For Lease" sign on the building.


The "before" view.  This is what it looked like before the facade rehab.

The new look is a huge improvement.
