Thursday, December 8, was a trek to the land of the obscenely wealthy - Rodeo Drive and the center of Beverly Hills - for Christmas photos of what's on display in the windows of Saxs Fifth Avenue and Barney's and Neiman-Marcus - and what's on the streets.

 

You will find those photographs, and others, in an album of thirty-eight shots here.
 
Here's Rodeo Drive –
