I wish the book was a little bit bigger, so I could see more details in the pictures, but it's absolutely nothing that a magnification device . could not fix.
Each chapter is devoted to a section of downtown LA like Main Street, Broadway, Mountain Street etc., and has an introduction for them so readers will gain an understanding of what the area was like back again then and how it transformed from being a rural and residential community to the bustling city that it must be.
More importantly is that in the photographs you get to see what city life was like for folks back then, e. h. the cars that they drove, the cable automobiles that ran along down-town, and how people dressed up. And readers will get to see some billboards and signage from stores, restaurants, shops and hotels in the region.
The book is a fast and easy, interesting read, along with doing so, I have an improved appreciation for some of the old buildings that I've seen and visited. I am a La native and never knew half the stuff about the city until I read THE HISTORIC CORE OF LOS ANGELES.
I recommend it to historical past and photography buffs and even to Angelinos., Great read, very enlightening, The particular books in this series never fail to fail. As a Los Angeles history nut, this just helped to round away my collection. You won't find any books with as many qualitiy photos than this one. A must for any Angelino buff., For someone out of town, actually out of the country, this whole series of books is great! It covers the historical past of the vcarious places in Tinsletown with pictures that one may not be able to find anywhere else., This was a gift to somebody who knows a lttle bit about L. A. historical past. He seemed really happy to get it. This triggered all sorts of memories for him, I was wishing for a tad bit more information on the history of the LA core, its properties and how the panorama changed. I was disappointed in the thin veneer and modern focus in the book. There was nothing really said about the Bunker Hill area, and the decimation of the most interesting area in the city. A lot history, and so many films made there., We get the book and especially its many photos very interesting and worth reading
especially We am planning to visit La to walk around downtown at least
some day or maybe two. I was stationed in LA for a Japanese company 1984-89
but too busy to explore the historical sites or relics then (also because the
downtown was not very safe then) Today retired with plenty of free time,
I will enjoy doing that with this book on my Fire., Exactly what a loss for artwork, architecture and Los Angeles, that's all I could think about looking through this small book. This has photos of many Los Angeles hotels and properties. Most of it was torn down to cater to the ugly sprawl that was created in the 1950's to make room for super freeways and lackluster corporate buildings that have no character.
Bunker Mountain, Los Angeles was completely flattened in 1955.
It has the Historic Core of Los Angeles or " downtown".
