Uncovering a Culture

Keeping one eye each on festival events in the mountain town of Kabaw, a group of women sit with backs against an elaborate tent wall. Their shrouds are in keeping with Islamic tradition, which forbids anyone other than family from looking at them.

Doggone Doggie Diner

This doggy diner got biting criticism from author Frederick Simpich in “Southern California at Work,” published in November 1934. Simpich—and likely, residents of upscale Beverly Hills—was aghast at buildings shaped like owls, teakettles, and shoes, so-called architectural eyesores that were popping up along roadsides in surrounding Los Angeles.
