Warped Mast is Removed

The wooden, mast-like structure occupying the Pacific Coast Highway right-of-way at the southern terminus of the Gladstones parking lot has been removed, Nicole Mooradian, public information officer at the LA Department of Beaches and Harbors told the Palisadian-Post on Tuesday, Nov. 28.

In its former glory, the mast’s since-decayed creosote beams were used as frames to hang colorful flags and other signage, a styling that was consistent with themes commonly used in California coastal areas during the ’60s.
