The 1970's were the times to be in lounges, diners and discos. It was like no other time I have ever seen. I love the 1970's decorations and furnishings.

Los Angeles is gaining its popularity as one of the perfect Residential Filming Locations to shoot. Because of the wide space and beautiful area that they have.

Besides the cars, the main reason you can tell that the 1979 photo is from a long time ago is the phone booth. Remember those babies? When is the last time you saw one? Many, many years ago!
