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.

S'Links Gourmet Hot Dogs - Coming Spring 2013


The signs on the windows say that S'Links Gourmet Hot Dogs is coming in Spring of 2013 to the location on the northeast corner of Myrtle Avenue and Olive Avenue.


Each of the signs (and there are a lot) has a unique name for a hot dog creation printed on them.  Some of them are pretty funny.

-These are fairly large files and make take some time to download, depending on your download speed.

-I left the two unsharpened just because some people like to do that step themselves.
