During Bisbee’s booming mining days, the stock exchange there was the only one east of the Mississippi. I have a baseball cap from there! And it’s currently for sale.

This was filmed at the Wayfarers’ Chapel, overlooking the cliffs of Rancho Palos Verdes, just a couple of miles from where I grew up. It’s a very popular spot for weddings – they’re booked out years in advance.

I grew up just a few miles from Wayfarer’s Chapel, and it was always a delight to visit. At 2:27, you’ll see a bluff across the road that I used to walk around at low tide.

The Wayfarers Chapel, also known as the “glass church” on Palos Verdes Drive South, was designed by Lloyd Wright in 1949 and the building was later completed  in 1951. (Lloyd Wright was the son of famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright.) This gorgeous chapel sits atop a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The project is said to have cost $25,000, and the building itself  is only 28 feet high and 27 feet long. (Full article here)
