This is an interesting book about one of the early pioneers in Los Angeles. The photos were fascinating, especially the ones of the Blanchard family estate homes located at Barham and Cahuenga. It's hard to believe there was a time when that area of Hollywood (now Universal City) was completely undeveloped except for those two grand mansions on the hill. This is a great book for readers interested in the civic and cultural activities in LA during the early 1900s. Fred Blanchard's contributions were impressive. I enjoyed the book. It was an easy read, the photos are great and I would definitely recommend it.
