Overview

Los Angeles attracts dreamers as well as schemers. Angelenos love their sunshine, beaches, movies, celebrities, cars, and freeways. Through words and historic photos, this book follows the story of Los Angeles from its origins through the phenomenal growth that transformed a desert into a dynamic metropolitan super-city. Remembering Los Angeles includes ample reminders of Hollywood’s golden age and examples of L.A.’s tradition of architectural experimentation. These are legacies for which the “City of Angels” is world famous. Yet this book is not a purely nostalgic tribute to a beloved city and entertainment capital. The images here reflect not only the most attractive features of L.A.—the beaches, the beautiful weather—but also the complexity of a city known historically for its urban problems too. With a selection of fine historic images from his best-selling book, Historic Photos of Los Angeles, Dana Lombardy provides a valuable and revealing historical retrospective on the development of Los Angeles. Perhaps most important, within these photos one can perceive the changing circumstances of everyday Los Angeles residents as they maneuvered the streets and worked in the orchards and experienced the tragedy of world war. In vivid black-and-white, Remembering Los Angeles opens a window into the past that will resonate with all who have ever been fascinated by this city.
