How to Read American Gang Graffiti. American Guide # 140 Echo Park


delmore[1] echotop Echo Park once a barrio made up of mostly Chicanos,Jews and interestingly Estelle Lindsay, the first woman to gain major municipal political office in this country. Serving as chief pro-tem for a day in 1915, she also became the first woman ever to act as mayor of a major American city.

The area is now increasingly subjected to gentrification, the speculator, the contractor and the realator. The neighborhood is adjacent to Silverlake and DTLA, and Los Feliz. A very desirable location to live and frequent. Remnants and reminders of the past fade not so slowly away, and if you know what and who to look for the history is there for the asking.
