Overview


Opened to the public in June of 1923, the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum can arguably be called "America's Most Historic Sports Stadium." In 1984 the Memorial Coliseum was declared a State and Federal Historic Landmark for its contributions to both the State of California and the United States. The history of this institution is captured here in over 200 vintage images.

The Memorial Coliseum's history spans eight decades, playing host to two Olympiads, two Super Bowls, one World Series, a multitude of concerts and political rallies, a Papal mass, and one of the most famous Democratic presidential nomination acceptance speeches of the 20th century by John F. Kennedy. Using photographs culled from its archives, pictured here are never-before-seen photographs of the Coliseum's construction; rare images of political and religious rallies held at the Stadium and the Los Angeles Sports Arena, and home to famous speeches by Franklin Roosevelt, Martin Luther King Jr., and Nelson Mandela; and a myriad of other sporting and entertainment events hosted by the Memorial Coliseum, including the Los Angeles Dodgers, motocross racing, and the Rolling Stones.

    THE RESPECT THIS STADIUM DESERVES

    It's about time someone paid attention to one our city's most important landmarks. There are literally hundreds of photos in this book covering the most prominent (Olympics, Super Bowls, World Series) to the more obscure events (Skiing and Rodeos) that have been held here since the 1920's--sports, music, speeches--it's incredible. The photos of the Coliseum being constructed are worth the price alone. Brought back many memories of Rams and Raiders games, too. An amazing scrapbook of images honoring an amazing place.
