Charles Phoenix makes the Donut Hole in La Puente his own for the slideshow he’ll reveal at Dwell on Design Los Angeles


With his quirky expertise, keen eye for oddball detail and quick-witted commentary, Charles Phoenix gleefully shares epic midcentury drive-ins, coffee shops, bowling alleys, shopping centers, extreme houses, dingbat apartments, fast food stands, amusement parks, themed environments, and more, all in glorious color. Highlights include Anaheim’s Wonder Bowl, Coin Op Laundry in Bellflower, and the Fosters Freeze in Torrance.

Catch Phoenix’s presentation firsthand May 31 at Dwell on Design.
