On August 9, Patty and Stoner van Houten ventured downtown to see the famous corner of Broadway and Temple where the Family girls held vigil during the Tate LaBianca trial. The building has been under a quarter billion dollar renovation for the past few years and has been completely draped in black until just recently. Although much of the sidewalk is still blocked off, they were able to take the following photos for your viewing pleasure:

Huell Howser once visited the inside of this building and the 10-11 cell block in which Charles Manson was held for his TV show on PBS. You can see that video here
. Word on the street is that you, too can visit Charlie's cell when the Hall opens as a museum sometime next year.
Funny, I am just reading a book about Civil War reuinions like the one in 1911 at Manassas where old Rebs and Yanks got together and reanacted battle charges and such.
it just got me daydreamin again hoping that some media force is able to get some of the gang back together again for the 50th. I'd just love to see Cappy and Gypsy and Nancy etc sittin on a back porch reminiscing.
I read a civil war book lately too, about McCLellan's peninsular campaign. Yeah, I was a little bored that weekend...
