Given that at least a dozen fans have forwarded these Google Earth images to me, they meet criteria for the poorly kept secret category. I was not comfortable posting these while Leonard was living at this address, but I did send him the photos late in March 2016, a period during which we were exchanging items to amuse each other. In his response, Leonard addressed the photos of his Los Angeles home:
Must have been a couple of years ago. Chairs have been changed. Can’t identify the other guy.
I came across that email today [when this post was first published: July 17, 2017] and realized that, since several photos of Leonard’s Los Angeles house have now been published online and since these are no longer the images displayed for Leonard’s address at Google Earth, there was little risk that posing these shots now, with the address information and links removed, would cause additional problems, So, here they are.
I am republishing selected posts from my former Leonard Cohen site, Cohencentric here on AllanShowalter.com (these posts can be found at Leonard Cohen). This content of this entry was originally posted July 17, 2017.
